  1. One of the most common topics that pops up on the forums is gear deals. It's a black box for most of the public and something I have signed some NDAs and can't discuss specifics on... However, it's a fascinating topic and we can discuss certain aspects of it. In summary, no one is making millions in gear goalie gear endorsements! 😂 Carey Price is the only goalie in the NHL’s Top10 earners. According to Forbes, TOTAL COMBINED endorsements from CCM, Nike, and UA (Carey’s agent must be gold. how do you get Nike and UA???) is about ~$500k annually. That’s only 3% of his total earnings. By contrast, McDavid makes ~$4.5mio annually in endorsements from Adidas, CCM, Bio Steel, Upper Deck, CIBC, etc. Thats’s 25% of his total income. Comparing Carey to #5 in the NBA, James Harden, highlights how low the marketing value or endorsement pay scale is for NHL guys. Harden earns $17mio annually in endorsements alone, which is more than Carey’s total income. In context, that is 35% of Harden’s total income. What does this data tell us? 1. NHL endorsements and/or marketing agreements with equipment brands are nothing compared to other sports. 2. Given the low value of an equipment deal compared to a goalie’s salary, no one would ever waste their time forcing themself into gear they’re not comfortable with. 3. Even if a guy does have a gear deal it’s probably low enough in value that a gear competitor could match it. This means that a gear contract ALONE probably wouldn’t sway the typical goalie into 1 brand or another. They could probably get similar deals from Brand X or Brand Y. They have trust and believe in the product. The one exception to this point is a veteran that is used to getting a contract and then is not renewed. Whether it’s pride on the goalie’s part or the agent in his ear, there can be “spite” changes.
  2. Tried to share this before and much of it is "Very off the record", so I need to be cautious with what I post. NO ONE gets anything close to LeBron, Tiger, etc. There is NO money in hockey gear. Carey Price is the highest paid endorsement guy. From what I have been told, he's about the only guy that moves the retail needle. Vaughn, contrary to what most people believe, probably has the most contracts out there? Murray, Quick, Tuukka all get decent checks. They start as low as the CHL with their contracts. Most guys wearing CCM by Lefevre were NOT getting paid. Hence so many people on either side of the divorce. Anyone that is not Lundqvist or Price and does have a great contract... it probably getting like $30k? Point proven on Price, between UA and CCM (How does he have Nike and UA?) he is estimated at $500k total.
  3. Pure Hockey and Pro Hockey life should have these in stock now. https://goalie.purehockey.com/product/aegis-interceptor-pro-g-goalie-neck-guard-senior/itm/43129-41/
  4. Flower wore Lefevre Went back to P2 Price in Optik 2
  5. Binnington’s dark set at the ASG was off shore, world junior gear was offshore too... Past that, it’s hard to tell. If Price has an Off Shore set and an extra Lefevre set and they’re both white with red logos... probably only he the EQM know which is which

    JRZ gear

    That's why I asked. That pad reminded me of Optik when I first saw it. Either of them noticeably better with slides or rebounds?
  7. One other question, while I have skate all taken apart, I will have to swap the bearings... Should I be cleaning and lubing them? if yes, any recommendations?
  8. I skate 1-2 times a week for fitness. Usually push my 2 toddles in a jogging stroller. I have t stop on paved trails to stop. I skate around 6 miles when I go? I chew threw wheels pretty good and would love to stop them being a consumable.

  10. That's sorta what people expect of the IG account. It got pointless and I felt like I was contributing to the problem, so I skipped the topic for about 2 weeks.

    JRZ gear

    I think had GNetik IV or Optik? If yes, how do these compare?
  12. As someone who "covers gear", this has been a frustration mine! Love the guys at Lefevre and communicate with them on a semi regular basis. But, just because a bunch of pros switched to Lefevre when CCM and Lefevre split, has nothing to do with what people are buying at shops. I bet the Lefevre gear is amazing, but depending on your definition of "take over" Lefevre is far from it. When they are partner with someone, that could change and it could be like CCM by Lefevre all over again. Time will tell. This is definitely not something to make an instant judgement on
