  2. Just picked this up yesterday using the Memorial Day sale on goaliemonkey. Also for anyone wondering what the nylon straps and plastic buckles included with the chest protector are for here’s the answer This works for y’all who like your chest protectors untucked too

  3. No idea. I did some modding of my own on the arm so they will probably charge me because I did a pretty shit job at it. I was told the protection package is identical to what they're giving pros. Given my personal experience with it, I find that a little hard to believe. In context, the unit was already in process of being built when they told me that, so I don't think it was some tire-pumping sales tactic. They also told me that guys who are wearing the new CCM unit have switched the CCM arms out to Kenesky ones. Despite the bruising, I really do like the mobility I get in

  4. I love shit like that, because it's fking authentic. Just quietly signing a card for a kid and sending it back. Not making a big deal about it. Not all the "look at me" crap and smearing it all over Twitter. Just doing it. So many athletes just do nice stuff when the camera is on. I hate when players hand out sticks to fans, it's so staged. Make sure the camera is on or make sure the fan is recording with his camera, ok, now hand the stick and smile, make sure the fan has an "OMG" expression...it's so clearly a phony PR stunt...🙄 But doing things quitely behind the scenes when the cameras are

  5. At 62 & same height, I hear ya! I've always said it's better to play with a group that has a few boomers on the blue line. It sure clears the sight-lines when they wind up !

  6. I was looking at your photo and the sleek lookin Brown but I can't stop thinking that those sleeves are short, damn short, tooo short! I've gotten so many pucks to my wrists which is why I look to have sufficient wrap around. Yes, the sleeves are shorter than usual, at my request. Even at full extension the cuffs of my BROWN trapper and blocker (JB2200) snugged up against the cuff of my C/A. I do have short arms, 32", I stand 5'7" and shrinking (70 years old - it happens). John wasn't keen on making my pants (JB2000) so smallish either. "Bulk is good" is his mantra. I had asked for l

  7. A few days and some adjusting, wearing it on with neckguard, off, with pants, off. I decided to cut the bottom line off, and a half of the next line up to make it clean. And in the same sewing operation moved the clip up one row to get some space between pants. Some rubber cord is to be installed on front of my pants that then attach to that clip. Original loop is too long and positioned too low. And while there, I was to cut and trim the wings on the back part, that are way too long for my skinny body. I first had them inside of those white liners and strapping going over, but the w

  8. Gretzky has got to be one of the best ambassadors of any game ever played. I don't think a single bad piece of press has ever come out about him. Compare that to Michael Jordan, who's recently come back into the spotlight with the Last Dance documentary (probably gonna start that this weekend, got caught up with "Dirty Money" on Netflix...also worth a watch) - compulsive gambler, shitty with fans, etc.

  10. So this is pretty exciting. On a whim my 5 y/o sent a letter and a card to the Great One back in March, right after this whole thing started. It took about a week to format and write the letter which kept him more than occupied. We got it back today, 2 autos on the card and one on the letter as well. He's absolutely stoked. Definitely a great way to start another week with no school, etc.

  11. While this is an old thread, I just have to share my happiness. I got this unit cheap, it's imported from US/CAN by previous owner. There were some fixes and modifications done already, so I decided to dismantle it and fix/mod it to serve me for some time. Base model JB2000 with no extras. Now it is updated with: Added padding at wrist and outside of bicep Modded elbow floaters closer to elbow and angled inwards a little Shoulder blocks renewed and bicep protectors modified to Brown extra bicep protection style Backpanel, sleeves, front part and floaters tied toge
