  1. I miss being allowed to play hockey. At least you kids are still getting ice times.

  2. 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.

  3. 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!

  4. Upgrading the smaller pieces. New knee pads, neck guard, and jill. As usual, Sara builds top notch stuff. This is my third set of knee pads and jill but first throat guard from her. I have two old Maltese, but wanted to try a PAW. Heard good things about it. Feels pretty good and feels like it will be very protective.

  5. I'm 68 years old now and had both hips replaced about 15 years ago (more from 50 years of hardcourt tennis than hockey)😄. Took me about 6 months to get back on the tennis court, then decided I wanted to resume my goalie career as well. Now playing 3 times a week with all levels of players at pickup and having no pain or issues at all. If you are having pain I highly recommend getting it done, and actually the younger the better, as healing and rehab is much faster than if you wait. I also chose the ceramic ball and ceramic cup which never wears out, and unlike the metal on metal do

  6. Mostly organized pick up in these pictures, but this is when I had Larcenys. Switched to the Toronto EFlex4s but I don't have any pictures in those yet.

  7. 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. Out of the goodness of their hear

  8. I'll post some pics of my gear that I have on my work laptop - this is definately not all the gear I have owned or worn this is the last 4 or 5 years worth. I currently only have the Fuhr and Wregget tribute sets & the retro Kenesky glove ( I bought it as I never felt comfortable in the Bauer 6000 one) as I have sold all the rest over time (I've never actually had more than 3 sets at a time). The current 2 tribute sets are both Kenesky, same specs on both and I had the logos done by a very good and talented friend. Anyhow I'll drop some pics here in hopes others post some gear pics

  12. Aunt was a nun and a couple of uncles were priests, history of missionaries in the distant past all from a french-catholic family. You couldn't say shit... err I mean stuff in my house that wasn't blasphemous...and yet, apparently I was the only one who turned out poorly.

  23. 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.

  24. how's your flexibility? Stiff pads vary from maker I am wearing a Brina's Optik2 Mac core pad and I don't find it that stiff. It isn't as stiff as the ultrasonic. I find it personally the best balance between stiff and soft. I also have the Optik 2 pad in a flex and I find they stand taller and as they only bend when you push on them. I also they don't

  26. That's cool. I'm dissapointed I didn't take the time to talk to her when she was in town for Tendyfest a few years ago. To be fair, she was pretty pre-occupied with a lot of starry eyed kids and I didn't want to be that guy.

  30. Try to keep things simple and just play hockey, sometimes in a slump people become harder on themselves with their routine when most of the time its better to just try and relax and focus on playing for the love of the game

  33. I've had a fair amount of experience with the mid level gear in both gloves and pads. I have mixed in pro gear I can find at good deals but I've like to try some new innovations from time to time and with a young family don't have the extra spending money to go new pro so the mid-level pricing helps. When I got back into playing 10 years ago from a 10 year hiatus gear had changed quite a bit and it took trial and error to find what I prefer. With pads I started back with some NikeBauer one55s which weren't for me so I quickly pivoted to some Vaughn 7450s which were great as they were softer

  35. I was fortunate to get onto a good team here in my new home, Memphis, Tennessee. The rink is the only one for hundreds of miles and is actually in Mississippi. Only twenty minutes from my house. Surprisingly good hockey with tons of transplants due to FedEx having headquarters here. Plus local kids from Mississippi, Tennessee and Arkansas who play here. Ole Miss club hockey plays here, too.

  36. Glad you brought up Itech. I can definitely draw some parallels between their lines in the mid-00s and what Warrior is doing now. They tried some funky stuff back then at retail and were able to retain a good crop of pro goalies. Fortunately, they could lean on JRZ to manufacture for retail and customize for Pro. For the bolded part, not saying you're wrong, but I am a bit pessimistic for a few reasons: First, the brand still does not have much exposure at the NCAA/CHL level. I think this is a critical point in a player's growth cycle, and guys will hisotrically take what they

  38. 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.

  42. I have a pair and have been using them for 8+ years and are still going strong minus the elastic wearing out. They are really low profile and offer good protection. They cover the same if not more than off the shelf guards. I know sara offers more choices now when it comes to inserts and gels

  43. I know its early in the season, but with a lot of True / Lefevre being seen in training camps and not so much Axis / EF5 I've been wondering if CCM's management started regretting ditching Lefevre... Maybe this is now the point - Price in True with a Warrior stick: (via TSN's John Lu)
