  1. As for pants, try out CCM pro stock pants that are HPUCLP or HPUCLX. They are lightweight and protective. www.prostockhockey.com
  2. For his height, weight, skate size and style of skating, the profile that works for him might not necessarily work for everyone else. I'd be interested in knowing what he uses, along with other fast skaters in the league.
  3. I'm going to say things have changed a bit since 1975 as it pertains to skate blade profiles. There's still all-out maximum speed going north-south where your hips and knees are deeply bent, you engage your arms to swing, and your stride starts slowing down as you glide more. Guys who do more north-south skating are happier with a larger radius. Fast north-south skaters aren't always fast east-west skaters, where a player's style is to get around in a zone as fast as possible in short distances. Here, these skaters want a short radius, or at least shorter than average. They make deep c-cuts to get their acceleration whether going backwards or forwards, and they want to be able to turn hard and deep. You can't do things with a 15' radius that you can with a 9' radius and vice versa. With that said, I think Connor McDavid's special sauce is his skate blade profile.
  4. Crossovers are a way to build speed. Not necessarily to max speed, but to get acceleration in a short amount of distance. There's a video of his end-to-end goal against Toronto. If you haven't seen it, here it is. He's getting a lot of acceleration doing crossovers between the right end of the center circle to the offensive blue line, once he crosses the blue line, he's not taking anymore strides. Of course, if he can do regular strides to get to max speed, then that's what he'll do. In this end-to-end goal, he's not doing any crossovers in his breakout, but getting all his acceleration from forward strides. He's going even faster in this breakaway.
  5. Aside from the possible penalty, it's interesting that no one on the white team is hustling to be a part of the breakaway. There's always an opportunity to get open for a pass, put more pressure on the goalie/defense, pick up a rebound, pick up the puck if the puck carrier loses control, etc.
  6. Maybe, just so that side would be symmetrical with the other non-damaged side. I don't know what it does, protection-wise, since it's really light-weight foam.
  7. I would get black nylon fabric that would cover the area that contains the hip pad plus the foam around it plus an inch all around. It would be two trapezoid (or parallelogram) nylon pieces, inner and outer parts, that you would sew together on the left, right and bottom side. The top would be left open. Now, you have what looks like a flat, polygonal tote bag. Put the tote bag thing over the damaged hip pad area. Sew the top closed so it closes up the opening of the tote bag patch, and it connect to the pant. So you want to make the length and width larger than the 2-dimensional size of the hip pad area, to allow for the depth of the hip pad to fit inside. Does that make sense?
  8. There's an ice skating thing called "edge work", figure skaters and hockey players do them. You can look it up on youtube or google it. Basically, you carve deep turns on one foot and try to hold yourself steady through the turn. It works on the variety of muscles used to hold yourself up through the turn or arc. The weaker you are, the less deep you can go. There's also edge work to help you work on your strength, balance and skating skill, you don't go as deep but hold yourself up on one foot but carving on the inside edge of one blade and then when you are done with the arc, you stay on the same blade and turn in the other direction on the outside edge of the blade. After doing a bunch of arcs, switch feet and do the same thing on the other foot.
  9. Chest size. Height not as important.
  10. Depends on the level of risk you are willing to take. As for the shoulder pad area, I've been hit by the puck, a stick, another player, the ice and the boards. Sometimes, the goalie will punch me in the back with his blocker if I'm screening... it's a thing . I prefer to wear the full-coverage kind of shoulder pads where there is a lot of padding on the front and back. Basically, I'm less willing to take on risk because I have a day job that pays, so I am not willing to wear the 1970's kind of shoulder pads, or no shoulder pads as some guys do. Low-level hockey doesn't always mean low speed or low power shots or hits.
  11. That's got to be from the 1990s or 2000s.

  13. I know the Vaughn 2020 catalog thread blew up like crazy!!! Well now, we can discuss the 2021 product line. https://vaughnhockey.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/12/vaughn.cat_.2021.pdf Just kidding. It looks the same as 2020. I don't think they sold as much due to COVID-19 and people not being to play.
