With the powers granted to me by the heritage of the GSBB in the prehistoric era of goaltending equipment admiration, here is the 2019-2020 NHL gear sitings thread we've all been waiting for!  Ca

Dear Mike, So. Good. As. Always. Love, TGN Regulars

Looks like his teammates are taking it in stride, they drew a chalk outline of where he dropped this morning at practice.

Weirdly enough, emerald padskinz and padwrap are not available at the moment; only weave is available...

Yeah, but I bet each team keeps all of their colors stocked for stuff like this.

That looks like Padskinz, for sure. It actually looks raised to me in some places.

I know. It’s just funny that we pee-ons can’t get any LOL

Plus it has that super flat colour look to it.

Most jenpro has a bit of a shine to it.

Agreed, definitely PadSkinz IMO. He used black in color zones for sliding surface and leg wrap on his prior set and it’s the same on this set. And since there’s no black in the retro color scheme...

Ha.

Every time I order custom gear and I get a wait time quote I always curse Jimmy Howard, Tuukka Rask, and Jonathan Quick.

I always put padskins/padwrap on the nose of my blocker. Weave will do; I just wanted regular in case of certain things...

Unbelievable  garbage from a well respected veteran.

Mrazek gets a penalty for whiffing on a slash.  Unbelievable. 

What do you guys think? Embellishment? Is Mrazek being a drama queen? 

Or did Thornton drop him? Was there contact with the throat?

Mrazek wears no throat protection and on the replay from behind you see his mask move forward and down quite a lot.  I can totally imagine force to the chin or throat.

I expect nothing less from the classy Joe Thornton.

He played it IMO. If a sucker jab puts him down like that, imagine an 80mph puck to the chin. Mrazek went after him, welcome to the big leagues bud.

Protect yourself at all times. Thornton wasn’t about to get punked by Mrazek.

I think he was trying to draw the penalty the whole time. That jab wasn’t dropping anyone...

There was douchebaggery on both sides.  No need for Thornton to go digging around, Mrazek had the puck well and truly secured but that baseball swing could have caused serious damage to Thornton's knee.  Same thing with the punch.  There was no need for it, but no need for the dive either.  Pretty much a punk exchange all the way around,

"right in the jugular!"

This is why I can't watch the current NHL. Gloved shot to the chin of his mask. Soccer flop (fell on his shoulder - so he was able to turn while being "dropped"?). The announcer, like all cheese ball announcers, was doing a WWE broadcast.

This is so lame it hurts to watch.

Also, odds are the puck wasn't fully covered. We've all been there. You can see how easy the puck came out after Thorton poked it.

It's embarrassing as a hockey player to see this act now get shown all over the place like it's real tough guy stuff. Terrible.

Man I keep rewatching it and I just can't see a dive or embellishment. 

It looks like direct , seamless connection between the jab, the mask moving down/forward, then the push, then Mrazek going down.

I don't think he was knocked out and I don't think it was a direct throat punch, but I just don't see a dive.

Oh well.

Full disclosure: I am a Sharks fan, too. They are my favorite Western team.
