  1. Thanks for the encouragement, bud. I'm in a weird spot; I dont want to play late on a weeknight anymore and the day job prevents my doing what I think I need to do to prepare physically and mentally. I wish it were otherwise. Further, I am not sure how well I would do in a league anymore. Any of the guys here, from beginner to experienced, who play in a league are at a level I dont think, as a practical matter, I can get to anymore. Maybe I am BS-ing myself into it but I am pretty content being a practice target. I enjoy hockey more than ever, even more than I did in youth to senior level, and if I suck, I dont cost the team a game. And if it makes me a wuss, I"ll wear it but I dont want a 34 yr old 230 lbs Patrick Kane wanne be or was back in the day crashing me and blowing me up. The hit you took last year would have been a major problem for me. Below here is from Saturday night a few days. I did ok in that I thought I moved better than I had the past few skates. Some awful goals where I was off angle and I have an apparent weakness on stuff moves on my right post. As an aside, I redid all the strapping on my CA and wonder of wonders, it actually fits like it should! I forgot how I dont necessarily have to eat shots off the collar or upper chest. Protection! what a concept. Thanks for checking it out.
  2. Time to change it up....start Imperative's 2019 - 2020 thread.
  3. Congrats Cam....all that matters is you won. Good start to the season
  4. Mid-season form, Cam. Great job
  5. Thanks fellas. Very average here to put its best face on it.. More sluggish than last week. Got to get lighter on my feet. Thanks for checking it out.
  6. First skate of the "season". Played ok but pretty lazy and didnt do a good job of keep my glove open.
  7. It would really be helpful if there was some repository/clearing house somewhere about which masks/helmets/whatever you call it are sufficient for ice against good players. I've seen some guys in net with something they bought from Play It Again and they think they are protected. That's from men who should be able to research why one bucket is better than another. I cant even imagine what a parent thinks trying to get their son/daughter's noggin safely protected. On a side note, relevant to the concussion thread, do any of the studies control for the bucket worn by the concussee?
  8. I bet the next big thing will be gear with sonar to help us find the puck on screens better. After that will come gear equipped with anti missile capability to shoot down pucks before they get to the net. In my experience, the guys/gals chasing the latest and greatest are usually ones who've just started or have just a handful of years under their belts which is totally fine. Having said that, if it works for you, use it. Keeping an open mind helps...even for a dinosaur like myself. There was nothing cool about a chest that was a mere bulked up sweatshirt. In fact, it sucked.
  9. You fellas are genuinely tough dudes. I thought I was pretty resilient with a knee and two shoulders but if either of my hips fade, I'm done forever. Persevering through a hip which is so integral to the job, not to mention like @BadAngle41 says, every day life, is awesome. Hats off, gentlemen, and best regards
  10. Willy asks, Willy gets. He's right though...should have included them at the start.
  11. I've had the Passau 60 degree trapper since the model came out. About a month or so ago, the glove's double T began to collapse on itself and some skate cuts on the outside below the fingers began to get worse. I wrote Timmy and he responded quickly and worked out the arrangements with David at the shop. David did a great job of fixing the cuts with a new layer of material (same color too even though I said use whatever was available) and indulged my request for a skate laced floating double T. Further, David probably stayed in the shop an extra day or two during the Company's summer break and entirely redid the cords holding the glove together. They did a great job turning the glove around in about 2 weeks at a relatively modest price of $110 US. Pretty amazing service. Btw, the glove was awesome to start but I am pretty sure I could catch a water melon with it now. Never used a floating T before; I sure do really like the floating double T. Pretty sick.
