  2. Price shuffles all the time. I think you meant to say Rask instead of Price. Rask NEVER shuffles.

    FFS, getting warm here in Victoria BC. in the next few days we are going to reach a high of 37 celcius. (100 F) Normal temp for this time of year is 22 celcius (70 F).
  5. I zoomed out on the GoogleEarth view, and the Rush song "Subdivisions" immediately popped into my head.
  6. after getting out of my gear, I stood in the rink in shorts and t shirt for a good 5 minutes to cool down. Then yeah, went to a stupidly warm vehicle.
  7. Victoria BC Played Saturday evening. Same rink rules as before the November shut-down. Arrive 20 minutes before and no showers after it. I was pleasantly not completely gassed, and not sore the next day.
  8. I've been having that as well. My monitors are still standing though
  9. Holy crap, that Silver Hand, when I hover over it, it says you are a "Newbie" I guess over 2300 posts is considered new???

    35 years ago, I wore my new Brown IN the shower to break it in.
  12. As a Ukrainian, I approve this message.
  13. Not a chance Matt... The most wily veteran signed/picked up by the team will get that, and then down the line of veteran players.

    Team Pics

    Doesn't every county in every state in all of the United States have a Johnstown AND a Jamestown? And a Springfield. Seems like it anyways to this Canadian, from the country where a Football league with only 9 teams had 2 teams named the Roughriders.
  15. Holy shit, look how loose the skin is at the top of the right (our left) pad!!! Pisspoor quality control there
  16. A Cougar, when they were still in Victoria. The last year of a winning team in Victoria. I only got into a few games, rode the pine as a 17 year old backup for about 2 months when Wade Flaherty got hurt.
  17. Nice and proper use of eh! yes, this was way back in the day... the 88/89 Season for me. I think it was about 94 or so that they stopped using that arena altogether. Tight corners that the zamboni couldn't even get into, suuuuuper steep stands that felt like the fans were right on top of you, and LOUD!!!
  18. I miss the old Mercer Street arena where the Thunderbirds used to play. That was probably the most intimidating arena I have ever played in as a visiting team.
  19. So, I am only 3 years late in getting back to this.... Tucked, with lace from pants tied into loop. 2 wraps of sock tape around torso keeps it nice and snug and in place. Suspenders over top.
  20. Yep, they basically just kept the roof and are completely rebuilding everything under it
  21. Glenn Miller is definitely actively producing gear. He will build his traditional pads, also the blocker and trapper he produced in the late 80's. Glenn will also do reproductions of the iconic Cooper GM21 trapper and Cooper blocker, also will do the Jofa Bourdon blocker. He is reachable by private message on Facebook. @husainjc, yes by the time your friend worked there Glenn was gone and Miller gear was being designed and produced by Paul Fricker (the owner of the original GSBB). Glenn WAS involved in Miller in Surrey (actually Delta) when they started up that operation in about 1986 and made the Berthiaume pads there, also pads for Kirk McLean, Richard Brodeur, Alan Bester. I had one of the first sets of pads he made when he came west from Michigan. Got a skate cut on the toe roll within a week, so went to see him at the factory in Delta and sat and talked gear with him while he fixed the pad. He is truly a master craftsman.
  22. I actually do the finger curl on purpose when breaking in a glove. Have done so for over 30 years. It lets me grip the stick better when playing the puck.
