    It’s embedded in the cowling. I like the feel of Graf blades.

    They stay in place, cushion the knees for dropping and protect well from shots.

  1. So what did you wear before this? I’m still in a Maltese I got in 2010. I was thinking of going the Kova route next. Would that be a mistake?
  2. There were sequences where Hrudey did what appeared to be an RVH and a VH. Of course, he was just improvising in the moment. Worked in both cases. A lot of paddle down from Potvin and Hrudey. McLean and Hrudey moved around the crease effortlessly, while on their feet of course. Meanwhile, Potvin was constantly resetting his gloves by pushing them together. Interestingly, Gretzky’s first goal in the game seven in ‘93 was almost identical to the record breaking one in ’94. McSorley had the puck on the right side and dragged the defenseman and goalie with him before dishing to Gretzky on the far side for backdoor goals from a narrow angle.
  3. It was followed by game seven Leafs vs Kings from 1993. Hrudey vs Potvin. Amazing.
  4. NHL Network is airing Kings vs Canucks from 1994. Game when Gretzky broke the scoring record. I’m enjoying watching stand-up goaltending of Kelly Hrudey and Kirk McLean.
  5. Are guys aware there are two professional Matt Murray goaltenders? https://www.eliteprospects.com/player/166670/matthew-murray https://www.eliteprospects.com/player/91683/matt-murray Confusing
  6. I think your old gear is being sold on facebook marketplace. I tried to tag you, but it didn’t work. Vintage Goalie Gear group shared the post.
  7. Anybody consider that all the Leafs fans who jumped on the Oilers bandwagon after the Leafs were eliminated and the Oilers made the final may have jinxed them? Anything that organization touches craps the bed.
  8. Yes, Vintage Goalie Equipment on Facebook has plenty of options for you. If you didn’t like an early Velocity clone, you’ll probably hate everything new. So going older-style used is the way to go. Sometimes you’ll get lucky and find “New Old Stock (NOS)”, which means older gear that never was used. Sideline swap and eBay have plenty of older gear you might like.
  9. How is Darnell Nurse still in the NHL? He’s terrible. He’s now -15 during these playoffs. Brutal. I’ve seen more attentive beer league defenders.
  10. Vegas was pretty Canadian last year, right? I know some Canadians who root for teams based on where hometown players play or if someone visited their town when they were young and impressionable.
  11. They were doing a lot of business with pros in Russia. I’m still waiting with bated breath to hear whether the company will continue on or if it’s a wrap. He didn’t exactly make that clear in his statement.
  12. Old man strength is a real thing young lad. Big bellies do not deter old men from achieving physical feats.
  13. Why the hate for Brian’s?
  14. Anybody notice the Stars super-fan and Instagram model hasn’t been behind the Stars bench recently? She’s the one with the exposed cleavage that would be seen directly above the coach’s shoulder. Is that why they’re losing?
