  1. I had JDP elbow caps on a Koho goalie chest protector. Never had elbow problems .
  2. Kind of a crazy design. CCM AS-V is probably the way to go if one likes the old-fashioned, decades old, vintage design, reliable and protective, JDP elbow cap.
  3. I would understand not being allowed to take pictures in the restroom or locker room, but in the public areas, what would be the reasoning? People take pictures during hockey games and practices and figure skating.
  4. Yeah, I've gotten self-injured on the ice. The concept of buying top-of-the-line equipment even if I'm not in a high-level league becomes more important as I am older and more susceptible to injury in a non-checking, intermediate-level league.
  5. Any of the latest pro-level shoulder pads should be sufficient. 10+ year old pads may have had degraded foams in the shoulder caps, or your body is breaking down and it wouldn't have mattered what kind of shoulder pads you were wearing, you would have experienced the same injury.
  6. Looks like it came in 4 sizes. I'm guessing it doesn't fit you. If you measure your hat size and your head is too big for the mask, then you know it is smaller than whatever your hat size is. You could ask around for people who have a smaller hat size than you can measure their head and then they can try the mask on. https://www.purehockey.com/product/hackva-2608-texalium-goalie-mask-senior/itm/517-41/ Helmet Size Junior Small Medium Large Head Circumference (in) 20.2 - 20.5 20.5 - 21.25 21.25 - 22.75 22.75 - 23.8 Hat Size 6 1/4 - 6 1/2 6 1/2 - 6 3/4 6 3/4 - 7 1/4 7 1/4 - 7 5/8
  7. No point in relation to the thread topic. Just asking if you heard about the Burns' San Jose to Carolina trade.
  8. Do you get any extra swag with your custom skates?
  9. You read about the Brent Burns trade to the Carolina Hurricanes?
  10. Maybe Warrior or TRUE Sports. $70 million/season seems to be so high that a manufacturer won't break even in profit on jerseys, replicas and team apparel.
  11. You want the center line of the blade (shows as Fn below) to be shifted to the left or right? I don't know if that's what you want to do without testing it. Maybe orthotic sole/custom footbed might fix your problem.
  12. If you don't want to buy a Sparx machine, and the local sharpening isn't good, check out https://www.noicingsports.com/ I don't know if the MSH Pro shop is back open or not. They did provide sharpenings and re-profile jobs. https://modsquadhockey.com/forums/store/category/10-msh-pro-shop/
  13. STX makes a 4-roll glove.
  14. Have you played center? You are more likely to skate more since you should be playing deep in the offensive zone helping wingers and deep in your defensive zone helping the defensemen. You probably want to look for a new team a level up this coming fall/winter.
  15. Better visibility doesn't equate to more saves. I would like to see a direct shot at the cage. That video showed the puck coming in flat where some of the impact was on the mask and not on the cage.
  16. I had a goalie girdle by CCM. It was good. I bought it around 1987. As for fit, it was great. Very mobile feeling and not constricting. I doubt it would be popular today as goalies want the width of the padding to help block shots, not a form-fitting appearance providing less blocking area. Also, wouldn't work with goalies who want to tuck their chest protector in their pants.
  17. I got their dual combination radius. I didn't like it so I went back to single radius. It cost me (cut to dual and cut back to single) but I was skating better with single radius. Whether you get a profile or not, their sharpening services are great. Where I am, pro shop sharpening quality was hit-or-miss. Radius of hollow was good, never got uneven edges, all nicks removed.
  18. It was close but Colorado played game 6 better.
  19. Looks like someone used nail polish remover. I guess it would be an experiment for you.
  20. Game 3 was pretty good. Tampa Bay looked much better than in Game 1 and 2. Game 2 was so sad, one of the worst come-back from behind games ever... didn't even score a goal during the come back.
  21. For those not from Toronto, what would these reasons be?
  22. I'll go to one of the major online hockey equipment retailers, Hockey Monkey or Pure Hockey, and then search for sticks on clearance. I'll buy what is there in my preferred lie in a right-hand stick. Curve pattern, kick-point and flex are a "beggars can't be choosers" selection. But, for the most part, I can play with whatever curve, flex or kick-point as long as the lie is right.
  23. There's four major brand skates, Bauer, CCM, Graf, and TRUE Sports. Not sure if there's room (customer demand) for another brand to squeeze in.
  24. OK. Well, it was just an idea. Having worn Bauer 6 D, and then trying a 6 E was not good. Although it felt okay when I tightened down the laces, it was actually a bit loose at the top of the boot and ankle area.
