  1. If I can piggyback on this thread... I haven't owned rollerblades in many years but want to get a pair to get back into skating while rinks are up in the air. Are roller hockey skates usually the same size as ice skates? What's a good brand that offers a decent, cheap option, if any exist. I don't want Wal-Mart blades, but I'm also not going to go play in these any time soon, if that makes sense. Thanks folks!
  2. Thanks everyone. So I see Warrior has discontinued Dynasty, so is Covert like Bauer's Vapor and Alpha like Nexus?
  3. Thanks for the reply. When you mean tighter, do you mean more in the cuff or in the palm/fingers?
  4. Hey everyone, I wanted to see if anyone has any insight into how similar or off glove sizes are between Warrior and Bauer. For example, I wear 15" Bauers, are Warriors 15" pretty much the same size/coverage or is are there any weird tweaks? Any help with this would be much appreciated.
  5. Dude! Never hang em up! As many others have said already, it's all about finding the right group of guys just to have a good time out on the ice with. Whether that be a private pick up, or a lower level league, as long as you're having fun, that's all that matters.
  6. What's up everyone? My wife recently was offered and accepted a position back in Atlanta, so I wanted to see if there were any locals on MSH that could fill me on on the better rinks, ones to avoid, leagues to avoid, bars to catch games at, all of that stuff. I know the basic Google search pops up three rinks, but any more insight would very much be welcomed. Thanks.
  7. I saw some older threads that have been archived so I wanted to ask you all again: what's the straightest blade you can get today? Is it still Crosby? I did see Iginla's curve from a few years ago was pretty straight, but those are harder to find retail. I've been using a Bauer PM9 mostly, but is there anything straighter than that?
  8. I totally get that. We've been burned a few times in the past couple of years by guys like that. But we're also getting to the point where we're stale and some of our old regulars are having life get in the way, so it goes. Figure if someone is willing to sign up for an app or community they all can't be high school glory goons.
  9. Hey everyone, wanted to check in and see if anyone knew of some updated apps or websites that you use to find players for adult/beer leagues. I found this BenchApp, but the map never seems to load for me when searching the LA area, and searching sites like Craigs List always come back with someone selling their old beat up skates. Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
  10. That's Chippa, was told the same thing by my local refs to make sure I know who the scheduler is and that I haven't pissed him off too much as as player. Good to know, though, that this is a common thing.
  11. Nope, no full contact. Random bumps here and there. But according to him I shouldn't play hockey, baseball, basketball, etc. I was thinking more of ok, no more getting beat up in front of the net and going flying into the corners, gotta lose weight and become a better skater with a better shot.
  12. @215BroadStBullies610 That's all good to know, thank you! I did speak to some of the officials at my rink about reffing, and I still have a ways to with my rehab, so most likely it will be next year I'll be signing up for any seminars, because as I understand it you have to skate at the ref tryouts.
  13. Ha! I've actually been thinking the same thing. I trust this guy, he is a sports ortho too, but he's saying the amount of times I've dislocated and have had surgeries, I already have quite a bit of arthritis, which is why he suggests no more high-impact sports.
  14. I know I sound like a broken record, but I had to have a third shoulder surgery to replace a torn labrum again last month. Now, I'm starting to learn how to re-use my arm, and my doctor said hockey shouldn't be in my future. I'm 30 years old, and I think it's somewhat ridiculous that I wouldn't be able to build up my strength and play again, but if that is the case, I'm looking at alternatives to stay with the game. I've looked into refereeing and what I would need to do to start with that, but does anyone have any tips for starting coaching? I already have the Hockey Plays and Strategies book by Mike Johnston, which I've heard is one of the best, but any additional reading material/tips for starting to coach and/or ref would be much appreciated.
