  1. I finally udated piece on my setup that needed it the most. New leg pads just arrived. I know it's nothing special as they're senior model (S29) and not even from current model line but I bought them brand new super cheap. They will replace my good, old gray G2. And as a bonus I get Axis Pro stick. Also super cheap

  4. As a pure blooded native person, I'm honored for a nhl goalie to wear our heritage. I see no harm in it. He was using to show of his support to the culture. But in this day and age u cant please anybody. If he didn't have a aboriginal homage to the aboriginal people, there would be an uproar also. one fd up world.

  5. Thanks! Here it is up close. I hand painted it with rattle cans and painters tape, then clear coats (I know, amateur). I primed and then plasti-dipped the cage. I'm 99.9% sure it's an Eddy...I asked Greg Harrison and he thinks it's an Eddy which pretty much copied his look. Every time I take one off the head I cringe as I don't want to go through repainting it again and I don't think I'll ever get it as good of a copy as I did.

Depends where you're looking Facebook: Civilized discussion on political policy Instagram: Your friends photoshopped into nice scenery, in front of nice cars, next to attractive people, etc. Instagram (2): Your friends from High School posting about how much they love "being their own boss" while shilling useless junk for a multi level marketing company LinkedIn: Your friend posting about a job interview experience, but bumped into a homeless crack addict while riding their 5 speed mountain bike to the interview because they're environmentally conscious.

  7. I decided to get some new gear while the season is on standby from COVID-19. Pretty excited, I haven't gotten a new gear set in years. Plus I got it to match my team colors! Enjoy!

  20. I recall Greg Harrison telling me that fans at least 20 rows up (his actual words were “those sitting in the Reds”, the second section of seats in MLG, above the Golds) should be able to identify his mask designs. At the time he was attaching a trout fishing fly to the backplate strap of Glen Hanlon’s newest mask. Hanlon was an avid angler so this hook was an in joke that the public wouldn’t be able to notice.

  21. it is complete... i know there’s been some discussion about certain adhesives on masks, but i couldn’t help myself with this one and decided to stickerbomb my mask with various stickers of my favorite band, whitechapel. it isn’t flawless but i’m still proud of it... additionally i got a jersey from puck hcky a week or so ago that was supposed to be a christmas present originally but oh well 😂

  22. Therein lies the key. As we age various elements, physical and mental, confront us. I was an Air Traffic Controller for 35 years. Was I as efficient in my latter years, probably not. But the solution is to recognize and adjust your standards. In ATC that may have meant to limit the number of aircraft under my control at any one time. In hockey I have been fortunate to play in age and talent levels suitable to my abilities. In my mid 50's I quit hockey for a couple of years (osteoarthritis) but upon retiring my wife and I moved across Canada to a drier, warmer climate. This provided some

  26. It's a stupid thing for the league to do in the first place. If players looking like NASCAR drivers doesn't bother you, good on ya! The look of Euro uniforms drives me nuts and I don't want it over here. It looks cheap and tacky, but that's just one man's opinion.

  27. I genuinely don't care if there are ads on their stuff if hockey is still happening. The boards are covered, it's on the ice, like if you're upset about this be upset about the rampant advertising all over the rest of the game (every powerplay being sponsored, the final five being sponsored, etc.). It's a stupid hill to die on.

  32. Dave Art reminds me of when good looking hollywood actors intentionally look like they are homeless. Hs art skills are so good for sure yet he works hard to make his stuff look like it was done by a kid with colored pencils. Like presidential candidate Kayne's $15,000 sweater that looks like trash. BTW - I voted for Kayne.

  33. Thanks to Dave Art - I now realize that the Flames logo on it's side actually is a burning mushroom. (The white inside of the C looks like a white mushroom to me - or a chef's hat)

  36. Tom Draper did it better: Art School Matt Here... The thing with the current masks is the fear of hard transitions between colors. The artists wash the edges too much with the use of lighter colors to blend the edge. These artists need to be more bold and not fear a hard transition. It's a mask, not a Bob Ross landscape.

  38. Went to go get skates sharpened today to cure some boredom (plus when I last skated they felt off, couldn’t shuffle) and walked away with a Warrior Ritual M1 Senior. First non-Bauer stick I’ve owned in 10 years, excited to try out!

  40. We just got the first larger production batch of these gloves in and will start shipping them right after xmas. The design is based on the pro goalies needs. I met with Juuse Saros last year when they were playing at Vegas and we started to talk about the gear and looked at his padded inner glove, which was baseball catchers model. Juuse told me that it protects well and he uses it at practices when needed, but had some issues with too much padding, padding not in right spots, tightening his catch glove with it, not getting the hand deep enough / to the right position etc. Since the

  42. Sure. There is lots to like about both lines of pads and at the end of the day for me it came down to a few small details: The Genetik pads are slightly thinner at the top than the Vaughns. I've really liked the way the ultra thin thigh rises on my Warrior G5's don't get caught on each other, so thin pad tops tend to catch my eye. I liked the strapping on the Gnetik IV better than the strapping on the V9 with one big exception: The professor strap on the Vaughn pads is the best implementation of that type of strap on the market. If you want to use a professor strap, go Vaughn

  43. You have to be very careful using this method. I tried in on my Canucks jersey but I think I left it under the light for too long. You can see the results. I would highly recommend only using it for 5 minutes at a time.

  45. Hi guys ...my Name is Ron Ince and I have a couple tid bits to add to the story ....I met Greg playing together in the old Scarborough hockey league him and i were the tandem one year i think about 23 years ago ...i enjoyed my time with him and he wasn't a bad goalie either. Had a couple great stories with him ...one about him meeting Jake Plante and Plante yelling at him about stealing mask design ..lol...Greg wore a set up of pads the were Mike Richters ..told me Richter ran like 5 miles before a game .....imagine that ..i remember playing 60 min stop time in jr and hardly getting through
