  1. Whats a schedule? Both Men's teams that I play on in NY, in 2 separate leagues mind you, only give their individual games out 2-3 weeks in advance. We never get a full season schedule.
  2. I'll be honest, I've been scorekeeping for 21 years now, and you can only be as accurate, in most cases, as the Ref cares to be. I scorekeep High School level and half the time I'm not truly paying full attention. I go by what the ref is telling me the goals and assists are. Most times I'll be lucky they give 1 assist and half the time its probably not accurate.
  3. Thats exactly what i was wondering, i got a notification of a new fedex package yesterday and was like WTF is this. Then when i saw your post i said hmmm i wonder....
  4. Did it come from an address in Montreal by chance?
  5. I was coaching MS and JV and half the time they don't know how to control themselves either!
  6. I wound up buying a pair of referee pants to wear when I coach, they're big enough to fit my shin pads under (I don't trust those kids ability to not hit me) and yet they're still comfortable and not huge.

    I'm tentative to do too much scuffing to it because its literally just the gel pad. Its the little pad that covers the tensioner at the back on the Reebok 11K. There's no backing on it, just the clear gel pad.

    Marine epoxy is an interesting idea. I've tried both ways that it says you can use it in the instructions. This 2nd time I put glue on both sides, let them sit for about 10 minutes to let them tack up a little and then stuck them together and clamped it down. Both times they had almost a full week to dry (which I've read might not even be enough time with Liquid Nails but that's the longest I have between games). When the glue failed the first time, the gel pad came out completely clean with no glue residue on it at all, and from what I can see now, it looks like its going to do the same thing tonight if/when it falls out.

    OK i've now glued this pad in place twice with the liquid nails and its about to pop off again. I don't expect it will make it through my game tonight. The glue is not adhering to the gel pad itself, it sticks fine to the hard plastic of the helmet piece. Anyone have any other ideas?
  10. The black alternates were terrible, but that was the Barclays mgmt decision to try and keep them in sync with the Nets. From what I'm hearing, its going to be a predominantly orange jersey with the NY from the stadium series jerseys. Love the Coyotes throwbacks! Canucks is great too, this was a fan vote though. They let them decide what the 3rd jersey would be for their anniversary season.
  11. There hasn't been anything good for the Islanders organization in a long time, and the fisherman is a reminder of probably the worst time this franchise has ever gone through. With Tavares leaving at the beginning of the summer, the team needs something new, not a reminder of something really bad.
  12. I really do love all these throwbacks. I'm sure the Islanders will find a way to royally screw it up since there really is no throwback option. For those of you who will say something, no the fisherman is NOT an option.
  13. OK I have a Reebok 11K and the pad that covers the rear adjuster at the back of the helmet has come off. I've used hot glue in the past to re-glue pads like this, mostly with poor end results. I'm hesitant to use hot glue on this pad though specifically because its one of those gel pads. I tried using rubber cement to put it back on and that was a complete fail, didn't even make it through 1 game. What do you guys use for re-attaching helmet pads? Any suggestions? I was thinking contact cement, but I've never used it so i don't really know. Thanks!
  14. As someone who has worked for the county HS league for the last 20ish years, I've seen all numbers of talented people come through, and almost none of them have gone on to play even DIII college, let alone DI. I can literally count on 1 hand the number of kids who played Varsity Hockey and then went on to play NCAA college. There have been plenty who have gone on to play College Club, but NCAA level, just doesn't happen. Like it has been said throughout this thread, if a kid is going to go somewhere, they will have been noticed and already be there. Sonny Milano came from Massapequa, NY. Our HS league had no idea who this kid even was because he never played a single game in it. He was already gone and in Cleveland playing by the time he was 15 years old.
