  1. Christ, sounds scary 😲 I'd be afraid to walk up a flight of stairs after that, much less even think about playing hockey again. I didn't really follow the whole thing, what was the reason he needed this surgery? Was it a birth defect or something he had his whole life? Or something that recently developed? ...like from all the heartache of playing for the Cup-less Rangers for so many years? 😜

  3. I read that quick and thought for a second that said "urine and water"... altho we could be on to something here...
  4. Thanks. Yea, I was wondering if the UV would break-down the material. But on the other hand, I don't think it's much worse than putting your gear out to dry in the sun. And besides, gear doesn't last forever anyway. But yea, something to consider. And good point about alot of the germs being deeper inside the gear, I guess UV lamp would only help kill bacteria on the outside of the gear. In any case, still could be an interesting experiment.
  5. As a lifelong Rangers fan, I say he should just retire now and stay true-blue...and also maybe not have a heart attack and die.
  6. I was reading about UV-C light is used to disinfect things in hospitals, and was wondering if anyone tried disinfecting their gear with some kind of UV lamps? UV-C is kind of "dangerous" in that you shouldn't be in the room when the light is on, so I'm a little afraid of that, but I see some reptile lamps are using UV-B which is also useful to kill germs, mold, etc (altho not as potent/ dangerous as UV-C). UV-B reptile bulbs cost about $30 or so, I was thinking to get one and shine it on my gear after playing and see if it helps anything. Just wondering if anyone tried it already?
  7. [RANT WARNING] We've had trainings and pre-season games the last 2 months (since end Aug), and just as our first regular season game (Regional League) was about to kick-off tomorrow, they shut down all sports for the next 4-6 weeks 😠🀬 because corona numbers have went up again. But death rate is low and AFAIK hospitals are not overwhelmed. Most people doing sports are young and fit, why now stop them? Makes no sense. Corona is out there, we need to learn to live with it, not keep doing rolling lockdowns/"slow-downs". People who are at risk should take special precautions, but let everyone
  8. Like Henry Ford famously said about the Model T: "You can have any color you want, as long as it's black"
  9. I got a pair of G9035 a couple of years ago to replace my G50's, but despite the inside looking soft and cushy, the 9035 boot was much stiffer (ie: less flex) which kinda made me not like it. So I took my G50 boots and mounted them on a newer Graf cowling and put some Step Steel on them. I'm pretty happy with that setup. I've been wearing only Graf for 20 years or so. G50 boots were the best in my book. (750/Cobra were good too, the precurser for the G50) I still have the 9035 in reserve, maybe one day I'll try them again if my G50's start falling apart.
  10. Kinda weird how Vaughn gets slagged on this forum so much ("not innovative", "doesn't promote themselves", etc.), but then is the most worn goalie gear πŸ˜„ ...just to clarify, what do those stats represent? Leg pads, or all gear? NHL? All pros? Amatures included?
  11. To be fair, with Fuhr doing alot of blow and wearing weird, random brands like Franklin.... I don't think even he remembers what gear he was wearing back then πŸ˜„ Smitty was always KOHO, from what I remember. Dryden was before even my time
  12. Warrior RGT, very light and mobile, and protective.
  13. Yea, True is kind of a new/small/nichè/quirky brand, who is now pairing with the decades old, conservative/veteran Lefevre ... let's see what kind of kids this strange marriage produces
