  1. If you flip the top clips opposite from the Bauer instructions then that will buy you a little more room. For the period of time that I had the Bauer bubble on my small CCM helmet I did that and it made the fit over the chin better.
  2. The only thing that impacts bad leagues is when lots of teams start leaving. No amount of captains complaining about this, that, and the other has any impact on how leagues are run as long as the league is still getting their money.
  3. It is mite hockey. If the choice is be a Hawk or be a Duck, I choose be a Duck. I'm guessing this coach chooses the other.
  4. If recent news has reminded us of anything, it is that successful coaches can also be dicks.
  5. I'll still toss them in from time to time but it is so hard to find good yellow laces these days.
  6. So his skates and gloves will finally match?
  7. It is beer league. Nobody thinks about Home/Visitor. As long as both guys are pretty square with sticks down, have at it.
  8. It will be interesting to see where he finishes with goals. He has been remarkably lucky in the injury department throughout his career.
  9. While the optics were comparable between the Oakley and Bauer, I preferred the coverage and shapes of the Oakley, specifically the aviator variants.
  10. Since Oakley dropped out of the visor game, Bauer is the better choice of what is out there.
  11. She looked 60 when she was 40. Tawny didn't age well but for that one moment in the 80's she was something else.
  12. Weird you don't feel the Ribcore wraps when all folks I know in them rave about the moldability of that line.
  13. I've been in 70k's for 3 years now and they've held up just fine.
  14. Some people should reread before they hit Submit.
  15. Deker, please accept that this discussion has run its course. You asked if a different helmet could have prevented the tragedy. Many responded with "possibly, but with the extremely low probability, it doesn't appear to be a concern for manufacturers or the general hockey public" or something along those lines. That should be the end of it. Your constant repost of the same comments is the internet equivalent of a 4 year old constantly saying, "Why?" Please stop. Signed, The rest of us
  16. There have been 2 careers ended by fluke pucks near the ear. There have been a stunning number of careers ended due to concussions, and many more that should have been. Ask Marc Savard and Paul Kariya how they recovered from concussions.
  17. I utterly despise guys who go the high route with dumps, especially in beer league.
  18. My arrival setup is the base layers under sweats. For post game beers in the lot I'm dressed to hit the slopes.
  19. It's easier if you put the wine glass down.
  20. I've been back out there since June. For my New Hampshire league, the only difference is I wear a mask on the way in and out of the rink. For my Massachusetts league, they still won't let us use the lockerrooms so we show up half dressed or at least already in our base layers and finish dressing around the rink. That is really getting old, especially doing the full change after in a nice cold rink.
  21. Do they feel like they fit well and not shift around while playing? If so, then you're fine. The way I found out a set was just a hair big was when I started developing skin tags on the side of my neck. Turned out the cap was riding up just enough to cause a gentle rubbing and produce the tags. Once I switched to a better fitting set the tags disappeared.
