2017-2018 NHL Gear Sitings

Recommended Posts

Guys I was watching the Vegas/Panthers game tonight and noticed that subban is still wearing his Brians CA? Did I see right - also what do we know about his change to the Eflex gear?.

After leaving the Pens on the 24th Oct, and being with the Habs for over two months now, Niemi is still using his pad wrapped Pens gear xD

Gotta assume that he likes worn-in gear and not that the Habs won't buy him new stuff!

OK, not necessarily new but what type of T does Reimer use in his glove, or is it just the way he laces his pocket? I've been watching some games/highlights and wondering what is going on with the pocket of his glove (pocket shape on both CCM and Bauer). Is it a softer T structure, different pocket lacing or a different brand of T?James-Reimer-Florida-Panthers.jpg.6996e93bbc98ebc561f947cd0d584b7c.jpgcodz111-ap.jpg.920e647ca4acd96179df3905500df8dd.jpg9c1057264ee64535b53ab8d68616b726.jpg.aaa835d590828adf5e07e3cde6571ce7.jpg

I think it's just because he probably presses the T bridge down onto his pant leg or pad collapsing the pocket, hence why it looks messed up.

Maybe why he can’t catch pucks?

Totally agree, that splash of red makes a big difference.  

Badly needed, too. I don't particularly dislike the 2S graphics, but the accent colors are barely visible. The accent marks are so short and slim to begin with... factor in the pointillism effect (I know there's a better term for that, I'm blanking) and I barely understand why Bauer included them in the design at all. Appleby's blocker may as well be black and white.

But printed graphix r da futoor!

I've seen what can be done, but at the stock level and the consumer level, Bauer's new tech is extremely underwhelming. Hell, even aside from their terrible choice in stock graphics, the lack of colour options is just abysmal.

He has come down with a case of LuongoPocketitis from being around Luongo.  Luongo has always had the ugliest, oddest shaped pockets.

Pekka using a Warrior CR1

Is that the only colour the CR1 Stick is available, or is Warrior just horrible at matching uniform colours?  Talbot's stick has bothered me all season haha.

While these show the CR2 + CR3. This is a better idea to their colour options.

I read on here that they take custom colour options on orders, but I can't find anything concrete about that.

I’m with you. I wouldn’t touch those pads. 

and then we have this available at the retail level.

I get the Brian's is the King at custom, and rightfully so and that Pro's get preferential treatment at other big companies (*cough* Vaughn *Cough*).

But there is just too much potential being missed at Bauer that it's almost frustrating.

The whole thing with Bauer's graphics/printing technology reminds me a bit of what I tend to think about DaveArt... you can have all the ability and technical prowess in the world, but if you don't have a good sense of design or taste, it's only going to bring you so far.

Bauer's digital printing could tattoo the moon someday, but if pads like the 2S and Vapor are the best thing they can trot out for people not named Lundqvist, who really cares?

Exactly. Even graphics aside, seeing the severely limited options for colours in a "custom" set is just strange.

I remember seeing some people upset about the yellow/black combination on the 1X. They only offered it in one gradient style (yellow outside to black inside) and Bauer wouldn't offer them the opposite despite some Junior kids having it.

Edit: Just looked at the customizer, I was wrong about them offering the yellow/black option. It's just yellow or black, but no mix except for certain colour schemes.
