  1. +1 Much more adjustable in terms of fit than pants. Worth trying on IMO.
  2. Remind me an awful lot of the One95's.
  3. I would 100% switch my stick model before I changed to a completely unfamiliar curve. Are there other brands available, even if a little pricier, with a similar curve?
  4. One thing that I don't believe has been said yet: your hips are too open at the beginning of the shot, facing the target. For a pure wrist shot, you want to start the shot with your hips facing perpendicular to your target. See here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MIUu28w04Gw. In his setup, focus on the direction his body is facing. This will help with shifting your weight and following through to the target.
  5. For the strength training portion, look into 5x5 Stronglifts: http://stronglifts.com/5x5/
  6. Yes exactly. Programming that features exercises like box jumps and full cleans emphasizes this explosive movement by recruiting fast twitch muscle fibers... essential for a quick, powerful stride.
  7. Pure strength, ie how much you can bench/squat etc would be gained by keeping reps low and weight high... think 3-5 reps at maybe 80% of your one rep max. Keep in mind though that there's much more than raw strength required in hockey. A player in "good hockey shape" will have a combination of strength, explosiveness, and endurance. You don't have to squat 405 for reps, but you do need to be able to accelerate quickly to beat a guy in a footrace to the puck (explosiveness), deliver or ward off a check (strength), and then recover quickly enough to do it multiple times in a 45 sec shift (endurance). Know your strengths and weaknesses and tailor your program as such. A good summer off-ice program will therefore include weightlifting, plyos/Olympic lifting for explosiveness, and running/biking for endurance, typically as sprints or intervals . There's a ton of info out there on the internet for that. Any questions just ask.
  8. Signing in for the first time in years to post this haha. Gents, where did you pick yours up? Been checking eBay regularly for a pair of 9.0 D's without any luck so far. Anyone at a LHS with Grafs still in stock want to hook a brother up?
  9. Quick question regarding custom Easton 800's on PSHG: what's the difference between the Tuff/Teck and Polyester options? Pics would be great.
  10. First day of college class after two years of juniors.
  11. First day of college class after two years playing juniors.
  12. Dupes, I speak for everyone on here when I say I envy you.
  13. Have to love work-place politics. I've been there. Keep doing what you're doing.
