  1. I actually heard this story on Spittin Chiclets podcast. I’ll do the best I can to remember. The team went out to a private club when they were in Philly and the Eagles game was on. Apparently in this bar the tradition is when the Eagles win they play “Gloria”. The team was having a good time and the Eagles ended up winning so someone in the bar stood up and yelled “Play Gloria!”. Song came on and everyone started singing. That’s when the Blues started winning and turned their season around so they started using the song too.
  2. For sure, I’m a pretty disappointed. Also the stock steel they come with aren’t worth skating on, had to replace them as well. Luckily I got them on a good sale, but still. I have about 60 skates on them. Skate 1 thru 55 were awesome though! I would consider True if looking at high end skates again.
  3. Once a week. I think I’m done till the fall, other than a tourney in June.
  4. Haha! For sure. There’s a few places I have in mind, just not sure how their work on skates would be. As a Leaf fan I have developed a really great short term memory. And have come to expect heartbreak every spring!
  5. Thanks for the suggestion! I’m north of Toronto, so that’s a bit of a hike for me. I will keep it in mind though. I figure there should be someone in the GTA that can do it. I’m just worried about my skates getting butchered.
  6. I’ve been using a pair of 1X skates for about a year now, and the padding on the inside of my right ankle has broken down. The left skate is still soft and cushiony, right one is hard. I had to pad my ankle with foam to get through the end of the season, but I need a permanent fix. Not sure if anyone else has experienced something like this or knows where to get a repair done. Any help is much appreciated!
  7. Going black with a bit of white or even silver would really pop. It would really go with anything. Here’s a pic of my pads but don’t be afraid to go with what you like. Even if it isn’t the popular decision.
  8. I think there are few cool features on the mask, I’m just not a big fan of it overall. There is so much potential for an awesome St. Pats mask that we only get to see once or twice a year. As a Leaf fan I guess I’ll have to resort to my favourite saying........there’s always next year.
  9. I think it’s suppose to be the Loch Ness monster but with little maple leafs as teeth. Missed the mark with what could have been a cool mask. He should have done an angry leprechaun mask as a Brad Marchand tribute.
  10. Those originals though........

    Will they be in store anywhere? Or can I go to your shop?

    McKenney XPG1

    Haha. Tucker’s right.....weirdest of the weird! What options are on the pant customizer? Do you have price point? Or do we have to wait til 4/1?

    McKenney XPG1

    I have a pair of Pro Spec 870 pants and they are tanks. Never had an issue with them. Thinking of replacing them with a new pair of XPG1’s. @McKenney Hockey How does the protection compare? I’m looking for a wider fit at the waist for tucking my chesty too. How do the XPG1’s fit?
  14. One thing I would recommend is trying on some SLR2’s and some VE8’s before placing your order. That way you can see what you like and don’t like about Vaughn’s stock options and decide on your mods from there.

    I saw a goal scored on Quick a couple years ago, where he was already in the butterfly with the 5 hole sealed, and the puck hit dead centre where the pads met, and both pads folded in and the puck went straight thru his five hole. Definitely a disadvantage of super soft pads.
