  1. 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.

  2. I can't believe it took over 25 years for the Avalanche to ditch the black pants, gloves and helmets. I always liked the logo, the colors, but the black was off.

  4. 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

  6. Don't forget the KIA save of the night. And If Canes scores over two goals YOU can buy two hamburgers for price of one. There is lot of ads in TV broadcast if you compare Europe. Here Europe the ads are in the jerseys and ice not in the mouth of commentator or my TV screen

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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

  14. 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

  20. The thing I find so intriguing about BHR is if the hardware fails, there's still the option to go with a full replacement later. If you can make it to, say, 40 before getting a BHR and that lasts 20 years, then you do a traditional replacement at 60, you're more or less going to be mobile until your days are over. Hope you can make your originals last awhile longer. Seems if you play this position long enough, for many of us our bodies tell us when we're done long before we get to decide for ourselves. I don't know how some of these 50+ and 60+ dudes are out there playing goal still.

  23. It's not like I want it, I'm really more unperturbed. At the end of the day I only really want hockey to be happening. Ideally there would be more strict of laws regarding advertising, I abhor billboards and the like. Keep it off the leg pads though, please and thanks.

  27. Believe the short answer is what we all know about Thomas - super high maintenance gear-wise - constantly wanting to tweak, retweak his gear (which is probably a nightmare if you are a gear manufacturer). Also - if you are happy with your final design guess you could be loathe to make wholesale changes.

  28. I recently pick up a used pair for Christmas and they seem great so far. Very solid doesn’t let anything squeak through the five hole overall great pants for the price. I run everything untucked with a 1x chest protecter and it works great no problems.

  31. My understanding is, this may totally be incorrect, that these are how teams are fulfilling certain sponsorship requirements that are being lost with no fans in the . Yes it’s a door that’s opening but it’s not a true revenue stream from my understanding. Although that totally could be wrong. I just don’t see stickers on helmets, especially during a season that everything is only being televised, as the end of the world. I don’t even see small jersey patches as an issue. The NHL will never become the European leagues. We are lucky that we are one of the 3 major leagues (MLB and NFL

  36. I don't know. I can only assume it was something he's always had and was recently picked up. Seems like it happens to many athletes where they have heart conditions and either drop dead or luckily get it repaired before it's too late. My sister runs marathons. She recently had to have her heart valve moved due to an abnormality in her heart. She had hers done at Mayo in MN. She's good now, but can't really get running again yet. But she will.

  38. Personally when routine doesn’t work I change something to try and get out of the low. Whether it be how I strap the pads up, what stretches I do, what I eat for breakfast, if you’re in a slump change is the best way out in my opinion.

  42. Oh definitely. I think my interest is to try different things and different brand features. I feel going full-custom would honestly be fairly overwhelming as I'm still learning what I like and don't like. It's not so much about cost, honestly.

  46. 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
