    Can someone shortly explain what the BOA is all about? (Sorry, don't have time to read the whole thread, watch videos, etc.)
  2. Blocker + Bottle

    Many different techniques...I think I take my blocker off tho.... PS- when looking at Holtby's pic, you have to sing Warrant's "Cherry Pie" to get the full effect
  3. Vaughn Gear

    Yea, I agree, Vaughn's model numbers have got too confusing. Kayen's list looks pretty good, except the V5 was 7990 and the V4 "LE" (Late Edition?) is 7900. AFAIK, they are the same pad, just different graphic and maybe one other small change. But basically the same pad. http://www.hockeyworld.com/VAUGHN-7990-Velocity-5-Pro-Leg-Pads-Sr http://www.hockeyworld.com/Vaughn-7900-Velocity-LE-Leg-Pads-Sr http://www.hockeyworld.com/VAUGHN-7990-Velocity-5-Pro-Leg-Pads-Sr
  4. George Parros to be named head of Player Safety

    Not Todd Bertuzzi? Damn. Maybe next time.

    Just ball busting And imagining a bunch of you guys at a Devils game watching Corey get his ass kicked and ignoring the goals while critiquing his gear for 60 min LOL

    Yea, nevermind the puck going into the net...."hey, why don't his glove and blocker match?"....LOL

    Not to ruin a nice gear-sighting party, but that's some good positioning on a tricky angle right there. Especially when you have to play deep (eg. powerplay). Normally I would probably come out and challenge on an angle like that, but then I'd be leaving a big backdoor open, which isn't always good, especially against a good team or on the powerplay.
  8. TGN Database - How do you wear your C/A + Pants?

    I just got a new Bauer Reactor 9000 CA this year, after 5-6 years with my old Heaton 5. I need a mobile CA, and they are hard to find now-a-days. All the stuff I tried in the store was too big and bulky, made more for blocking, the Bauer was the only one that felt good right off the bat. There was a Vaughn that wasn't too bad weither, forgot which, Velocity I think. The CCM CA's were horrible. Couldn't move my arms. I wear suspenders over, and CA out of the pants (never understood how you can tuck it in?). Pants are TPS GP104.
  9. Foam Core Stick Thread

    Nope. ReidiC. Just like his old man's
  10. Foam Core Stick Thread

    I've been into Frontier sticks the last year or two. Before I was into all-wood TPS sticks, and didn't like foam-core because it didn't feel as stiff. The Frontier 9985G is foam-core, but still feels stiff as a regular all-wood stick. Thinner profile than Warrior. And best of all... Frontier sticks are made in Estonia Here's my 14 year old son with one of my ...errr... now his... custom Frontier stick (reminder to self: have to double the size of my next order)
  11. New Gear: How Often?

    Just curious how often everyone replaces their gear? I know it varies depending on use (time on ice), how deep your pockets are, if you buy PRO or SR gear, etc. These are my "average" times.... Time on ice: 2x per week for 6 months of the year (no hockey in summer) Level of pads: PRO 3-4 years: Leg pads, gloves, pants, bag 5-6 years: Chest and arms, jock, skates 10 years: mask (altho I replace the foam and straps every 3-4 years, and replace dented cages as needed) Sticks per season: 2-3
  12. Fullright's 2017-2018

    "Rip" means like fun to watch. I guess after watching 6'3 giants repeating the same bfly moves over and over, watching a shorter guy throw some crazy 70's moves is really a breath of fresh air. Rock on! PS- Where did you pick these moves up? How old are you?
  13. Fullright's 2017-2018

    You're a rip man. I haven't seen that style of play since the 70's. How tall are you?
  14. The Mask Thread

    How do you know exactly who is using it? Are you selling the stuff?
  15. 2017-2018 NHL Gear Sitings

    1) Someone told me Quick was switching to CCM. Is this true? 2) The Hurricanes CAN'T have a good jersey. It's impossible. They have a Drain-o symbol in the middle of it.
