  1. I disagree that Elite has the best laces. They are one of the worst IMO. The amount of wax they have is absurd. Most of it accumulates on the eyelets. Never bake a skate with Elite waxed laces unless you want it to melt all over your hands. Their laces are also very thin, which rolls more than other brands. I like that they have molded tips but that's about it.
  2. I've never found the need for the height comparator gauge. Prior to sharpening I'll check the skate blade with my Blademaster Pro Square. If they're not level I'll look for the position and size of the spark on the wheel. When I've made full contact with the blade to the wheel, I'll check the level again before making any height adjustments.
  3. If your son is LH, Hockey Monkey still has the HTX in his spec. At $60 a pop, that's hard to beat.
  4. $700 is the what a top level C/A costs nowadays, regardless of brand.
  5. I don't like Elite waxed laces. They're so thin they tend to roll. Thicker laces stay flat.
  6. Skating on sandpaper sounds like your sharpening lacked a finishing pass.
  7. Warm up a skate oven, turn the oven off and put your gloves inside for 1-2 minutes. I like to heat one glove at a time so I can work it in before the other glove cools down.
  8. At that price I'd rather have the Blademaster one. https://blademaster.com/web/en/gauging-accessories/249-br100.html $105CAD is about $80US.
  9. No companies will authenticate game worn jerseys, just signatures. Your best bet is to find any defects (marks, loose threads) on the jersey and photomatch it. Being a Gretzky, you should have tons of photos to choose from.
  10. Get a job at a LHS and attend a Bauer PK event.
  11. Post some photos and we can assess if they're actually gamers or retail replica/authentics. If it's indeed a game worn, the autograph will hurt its value slightly. Who issued the COAs? If they're from a reputable source (ex. the team) then it'll add value. The COA does nothing for the jersey if its issued by an unknown company.
  12. Your local shoe repair shop should be able to help you out as well.
  13. Coles notes: Hong Kong is up 11-2 vs Kunlun Red Stars. Kunlun players start assaulting Hong Kong players from behind with gloves on. China is calling this a "collision" while all other media outlets are calling it a brawl or assault. 3 Chinese players have been banned. What a bunch of losers. https://ca.sports.yahoo.com/news/massive-hockey-brawl-erupts-between-hong-kong-and-shenzhen-at-national-youth-games-in-china-151557804.html
