  1. I was in your exact same shoes (or should I say skates?) before I bought my CCM Premier 1's. I was coming from the very same RBK Premier 2 setup as you were, and although buying another brand was tempting, I decided to stick with what I love about my RBK Premier pads and go with a custom set of CCM Premier 1's for my next set. Since then, I have fallen in love with these things. Yes, they were stiffer and taller at first (which was expected coming from older pads), but I got used to them and do not regret my decision one bit. If I was you, I would stick with the Premier line and go with the CCM P2's. I think there is something to be said about sticking with what works and not taking too big of a jump. All the best with your new set!
  2. I'm a huge fan of those CCM P2's! So simple but I love that about them. The design flows really well with the colour placement and looks awesome.
  3. Not surprising, as athletes (for the most part) aren't experts at writing. No doubt these pieces are edited and formatted to tell the perfect story for the readers. That's nobody's fault, as The Players' Tribune needs to work to obtain a certain quality of pieces to attract readers, and the athlete themselves get a nice space to discuss their experience on a certain topic and (not entirely sure if true) but maybe some financial compensation as well? Total speculation of course. I personally love the articles though, and I'm a big fan.
  4. Watching Crashed Ice events are always awesome. These guys are really brave trying this stuff. Those courses look very challenging! Especially those gap sections...
  5. Hmmm, that's interesting. Could be a nice option for guys like Price who still use a cowling, but this option may be able to provide them with the protection they need without the added bulk. I like it. Vasi coming up huge (in the highlight reels) and in the skate protection conversation.
  6. Maybe try wrapping the glove closed and wrap the T also to help with the closure?
  7. I've never worn suspenders but these look sweet!
  8. I've been wearing the CCM 500 Sr double cup jock for about 5 months now after my old jock was starting to rip and fall apart and it was hard to put on (once I tore it open I realized it had one of those yellow Banana Cups inside. With this CCM, it's my first double cup, so while it was bulky at first coming from my older jock, now I don't even notice it once my pants are on and I'm on the ice. I wear my C/A Untucked, and this jock doesn't shift or move around when I play. It also has easy velcro adjustments to get that snuck fit around your waist and legs from the elastic straps. This fall I also started subbing weekly for a very high level men's league in my area. Every player can shoot the puck, so every shot feels like a bomb, and this jock has held up great so far. Above the jock, I also like the padding up top. It covers a fairly large surface area and is pretty thick, so it adds comfort and protection to that area. Glad I pulled the trigger on this when I did. Also, the materials on the inside are meshy so I feel like it air dries easier which is always good for gear hygiene purposes. I can spray some Captodor inside after I play and know that the solution is going right where I need it to go and is going to dry properly.
  9. I've always wanted to watch this one!
  10. True that! I've been dedicated to my own yoga practice at home and in a studio 3-4 times a week now for about a year and a bit and I've can notice the difference in my game since adding yoga to it. I feel more stable with my movements, my legs have more stamina, plus the flexibility/range of motion improvements help of course. Plus after a more physically tough game or a heavy weekend of simultaneous playing, I feel yoga "repairs" my body while keeping it active and moving. I do a studio class mix of Relaxation or "flex" yoga, along with a Vinyasa Hot Yoga flow, plus additional YouTube yoga videos at home on my mat every week. Yoga is fantastic. Whenever my body can't handle being a goalie anymore, yoga will be something I continue to do until I die. No joke. It's that good! If you have any doubts about doing yoga, just erase all that and start. It's a game changer.
  11. Oh for sure. Just a couple of weeks ago we lost 1-0 to the first place team who usually score something like 5-6+ goals per game. I played out of my mind and after the game I felt fantastic, no matter what the final score indicated or that we lost. Don't get me wrong, I wish we could have tied that game or won it, but as a goalie you can't influence that, so I'll chalk this one up as a win in my books.
  12. Awfully blurry, sorry for the lack of quality in these photos, but it’s the first time seeing myself in my new CCM Premier’s, so here you go!
  13. I have CCM Premier 1's. I love them! Very consistent and still fairly stiff after 1 year. These will last me a long while!
