  1. Yea, watching right now. We'll see where Lafrenière is slatted to go. Just nice to have a NHL event on TV.
  2. Ah the ultimate setup. Well, I'll slap on the Marsblade R1's instead but a job well done nonetheless!
  3. And that's the unfortunate truth. Tough to go to the rink to "get a break" from reality when being at the rink puts you at higher risk. Rough stuff.
  4. That's the problem with people who are in charge/places of power. Instead of looking out for the greater good, those people are worried theirs and theirs only. Hopefully, change is coming sooner than later. Clearly long overdue.
  5. My first schedule game will be with my inline team during the 1st week of July. I want to get back to hockey but still don't feel comfortable going back. Its weird feeling this way as (like most of yous) a hockey junkie. We'll see.
  6. Ain't that the truth! We as humans try too hard at times to fit in. Disgusting what some of us will justify as permissible.
  7. It's messed up but not surprising. We've heard stories like this before but I don't think it has been this high of a profile (maybe Theo Fluery). We have to wonder how much of this is still going on at higher levels of hockey.
  8. Yea, that's the rub right there. I don't think they will start hockey till our area is in the area in the Green Zone itself. By that time, I'm sure the rink will have a decent sense early on if their new way of doing things is working.
  9. Definitely my concern to when we open up here in the Greater Philadelphia area: unnecessary exposure. I just hope that everyone else did/does their part and stay healthy. I look forward to playing hockey (hopefully) soon.
  10. One the rinks will start opening up next week for youth camps with limited access. As for the adult league, it seems that each team will get two lockers to enable social distancing while getting dressed and will have to clear the locker room quickly after our game is played.
  11. You think? I've been wearing a bubble for a minute I could see myself using the lower splash guard.
  12. I'm going to guess @Edonnelly16 meant the Bauer Ultrasonic skates...
  13. The format makes sense. I'd imagine the TV contracts probably look to have a regular season and playoff season fall under one year on an annual basis. Starting hockey in the summer should be part of the 2019-2020 season. If anything, it would be nice to have hockey start and end later. But that is someone who watches all sports but likes baseball the least. Having summer hockey would be nice and there are plenty of sports during the fall. Interesting times ahead.
  14. I've only used a couple of indoor wheels but the Konixx Pure (+2) wheels are my favorite ones thus far. I'm currently using them and look forward to using the Pure X's when the time comes to replacing my current wheels.
  15. I've always used retail for everything. It wasn't until I joined MSH till really understood the pro stock market. Since then, I've gotten a couple of pro stock sticks but that's it. I don't really change out any other piece of equipment as frequently as I do sticks.
  16. Definitely heading in the right direction.
  17. I think Oakley is working with the NFL on something like this also. Edit: Yep, NFL and Oakley are looking at some type of face mask https://www.designnews.com/medical/nfl-prototypes-face-masks-protect-players-covid-19/130376452663070
  18. It's the same model but physically two different boots ha. Depending on how the ice skates have been broken in, there may be so much comfort with them one may not want to use another pair of skates. Like I mentioned here and other posts, I'm Team Marsblade no questions asked. I've pre-ordered the R1's because of my experience. I just try to give as balanced as a response/review coming from a biased perspective.
  19. @krisdrum In personal (and unprofessional) opinion, Marsblades are close enough to ice skating. For the last two years I've been playing both inline and ice hockey (also ref and coach ice hockey too). Not uncommon for me to go from playing inline to ice in the same night. I know my ice skating (which is much more important to me) has suffered in any shape or form. The reason why I got the Marsblades OG O1's was because I didn't want to compromise what was more important: my ice hockey skating stride. I've been using the OG O1's for two years now and they have not disappointed. Now, the drawbacks that I could see one having are that the O1's will have you sit higher than normal ice hockey holders. That and you would have to use a different boot than what you're accustom as an ice hockey skater. I would love to have something like Can-Ice but the cost and space are two things that make the Marsblades clutch items.
  20. It would be nice to have hockey back but it will be sloppy play I'd imagine. Going from off-season mode to Game 7 mentality seems like a lot for such a short period of time.
  21. Hoapa is having a special where you get a tapered shaft + 2 blades for $99 (you get free shipping if you spend a total of $130): https://www.hoapahockey.com/products/helium-custom-2-piece-training-set?variant=33543403896971 Don't know anything about them, but I know that I expect to be working from home till at least early June 2020. Would be nice to order a cheap 2-piece and get some outdoor wheels and utilize all that sunlight during the early evening.
  22. I can also attest to the "ice-like" feeling when using the O1s. I've been using them to play full time for about 2 years and its been a blast! Because of my long-term experience with them, there was no hesitation with the R1 pre-order. As someone who spends a lot more time on ice, the transition from ice to inline (and vice versa) has always been seamless. I don't find myself having to readjust my stride like I have in the past with normal inline chassises.
  23. Is that why they "shut down" for a few months?
