  1. https://www.gettyimages.com/detail/news-photo/melker-karlsson-of-the-san-jose-sharks-gets-tripped-up-when-news-photo/1141271468 New Ribcor? Seems early.
  2. Weren’t those old Easton sticks (original Stealth, I think?) 400 grams or lighter? It seemed like everyone kind of agreed 415-430 was about the sweet spot until Bauer disrupted that with the Vapor 1X Lite and ADV.
  3. Interesting. I wonder if they are moving towards updating their whole stick line every year like CCM.
  4. Yeah, that does go without saying, no question. I’d be so curious to see how many players actually have/had ribs, a metal faceplate, a self-healing gel or any of the other unique features in their actual stick that the retail models have/had.
  5. Generally, it seems like Bauer and Warrior do a better job of getting their top guys in current (or future) product. Of course, they don’t turn over their whole stick line every year... My local store has a CCM banner of Crosby, McDavid and Burns with photoshoot product. It’s funny because they’re all shown using the latest, greatest sticks but none of them actually do. Whether it matters or not from a marketing perspective is a separate question, haha.
  6. https://www.gettyimages.com/detail/news-photo/patrick-kane-of-the-chicago-blackhawks-skates-with-the-puck-news-photo/1088768036 New Vapor stick?
  7. Haha, I like that this forum is half people in the know observing the other half (my half) excitedly noticing new gear and speculating wildly.
  8. Looks like a new Alpha stick. Alpha DX? https://www.gettyimages.com/detail/news-photo/pittsburgh-penguins-center-dominik-simon-and-st-louis-blues-news-photo/1075815174 https://www.gettyimages.com/detail/news-photo/pittsburgh-penguins-center-dominik-simon-during-an-nhl-game-news-photo/1075920216
  9. This has got to be a first. Ben Lovejoy appears to be wearing a Supreme 2S Pro on his left foot and a Vapor 1X on his right foot. https://www.gettyimages.com/detail/news-photo/tyler-bertuzzi-of-the-detroit-red-wings-is-hit-into-the-news-photo/1068909338 https://www.gettyimages.com/detail/news-photo/michael-chaput-of-the-montreal-canadiens-takes-a-shot-as-news-photo/1070835554
  10. I asked because I was surprised there didn’t appear to be a custom option for a V-cut pro skate this year (at least available to consumers). I was wondering what they were going to do with Toews and all the rest of the more traditional non-Curv guys.
  11. Is this a tech mesh 2N skate? https://www.gettyimages.com/detail/news-photo/johan-larsson-of-the-buffalo-sabres-reacts-after-falling-news-photo/1053628620 https://www.gettyimages.com/detail/news-photo/johan-larsson-of-the-buffalo-sabres-and-joel-armia-of-the-news-photo/1053629214
  12. Do CCM’s names have a particular meaning? Like does FT1 or AS1 stand for anything?
  13. Brock Boeser. I think they’re called Jetspeed FT2.
  14. Must be called the 2X Pro? Earliest I can remember a Vapor skate being worn on this release cycle. I wonder if they’re going to a one-piece skate.
