Howdy,

So in that pic Jagr has CCM helmet/pants, Warrior gloves, and a True stick.  I'm not cool enough to know what kinda skates...

Are these guys not all locked into contracts with companies?  I'd have thought most / all of the pros would be contracted to wear only CCM or Bauer or Warrior, or whatever else in exchange for $$$.

I think Jagr probably just does what he wants these years.

Not quite.  As with anything Pros can simply choose not to take an endorsement deal, or not be offered one.  Older players tend not to care much except to keep on using what they've always worn (for example, Sedins wear Bauer Vapor gloves, CCM/RBK 11K-shell helmet, Supreme skates year after year).

The endorsement deals for the majority of players aren't enough to influence usage.

True is growing quickly in the NHL that's for sure

See more and more people with a True stick every week. A6.0 is the best balanced stick i have picked up in a long time. I imagine the new XC9 is even better, puck feel isn't the best for my personally but still much better then most sticks i have used in recent times

Ovechkin is apparently gonna wear these tomorrow night during warm-ups for Russian Heritage Night, and they'll be auctioned off. All I can say is Красивые коньки!)))))

Picture of other side of skates, and clarification of when they'll be worn

Wow, there's a lot going on there. Hope someone gets a shot of him in them.

LS 3 ???

Surprisingly. Ovi's well known to be incredibly finicky about his equipment. He finds what he likes, and sticks with it. But then again, I was thinking that it's pretty popular in the NHL, it seems like most Bauer pro stocks are with LS3 steel.

Well I'll be a s.o.b... :tongue: Always wondered about that, I've noticed his steel always did look darker than Bauer Lightspeed.. Guess the LS3 was just for the profile shots of the skates

What is across Jagrs laces and around his heel? Some sort of Heel lock?

I think it's just tape to hold his laces down.

It looks way shorter than the 8k extended forearm though, sort of "in between".

Europeans were treated to the "20k long" at retail :)

Can confirm, I've a pair of 20k long, pro stock with the extra plastic shell
