    The FRS is legit. Really stable and closes the 5-hole quickly

    Best knee pads I've used so far. Curve composite piece is very protective. Not as bulky as other similarly protective knee pads.

    Protective and does not have a huge waist piece. Important because it doesn't get in the way of your pants/CA when crouching forward.

  1. Made me feel a lot better about the goal I gave up with 3.4 seconds left in the first period in my game last week (sadly we did not go on to win like Fleury did). Pros - they're just like us! What a world!

    2021 Playoffs

    I think it should have been the length of the series, but with the way Winnipeg played the first game, it might still be. I can see the DPOS saying mitigating factors of things like no elbow raised, "glided" from the dots, etc. In my opinion those are outweighed by how far he came from to lay the hit and not even trying to play the puck on it. That the hearing was by telephone indicated it would be <=5 games, so 4 is one under the max he could have gotten once they decided that.
  3. Both versions are now on the goaliemonkey website, as well. https://www.goaliemonkey.com/accessories/knee-thigh-guards/bauer-goalie-accessories-pro-knee-guards-sr.html https://www.goaliemonkey.com/accessories/knee-thigh-guards/bauer-goalie-accessories-elite-knee-guards-sr.html
  4. Is goaltending really that much a contributor to their woes? They've scored only 2 goals in three games; only managing 1 goal against Latvia and Germany combined is pretty pathetic.
  5. Maybe he is leaning back all the way or it's a weird angle for the picture, but that neck guard does not seem to be protecting much in that photo.
  6. COVID-19 also killed the concept of playing defense
  7. From winning zero games last season to champs this season!
  8. @TheGoalNet lives in the Chicago area, and was looking for someone to play opposite him in one of his games a few days ago (a week ago?) on instagram. PM him and he may be able to help get you in somewhere.
  9. https://www.facebook.com/Guardian-angel-cages-274800526748916/ I have his open-mouth cat-eye cage design and it has been excellent so far. The cage bars are slightly thicker than on a stock cage, so it is a little heavier, but I've taken several shots off it with no denting or bending yet. It is also made to the measurements you take of your existing cage (various widths, depth of the top/bottom curve, etc.), so you know it will fit.
  10. This is the graphic I will go with once I figure out exactly which specs I want. I agree that it is a lot better than the UltraSonic graphic.
  11. What difference does the thin (stock) vs. thick shin option make? What would be the reason to choose one over the other?
  12. As the article points out, this is not the case. Part of the "Operation Warp Speed" contractual agreements with the vaccine producers prevent the US government from distributing the doses procured with those funds from going outside the USA. If you want to argue that we should rewrite/renegotiate the agreements as we now have more than we can use, then I completely agree - but our hands seem tied until that is resolved. The government cannot, legally speaking, do whatever they want with those doses; they have to respect the terms in the contracts they signed. Could we spin up a separate production operation using the Defense Production Act as justification, and have its funding come from an unrelated source? Maybe, but I'm not familiar enough with the intricacies of vaccine production to comment on whether it could be done on a short enough timescale to matter here. I was just saying that it is not as simple as packing up the extra doses in a refrigerated FedEx truck and driving them across the border, as much as we both might like it to be.
  13. We want to, but due to the contracts negotiated by the previous administration, cannot. https://www.vanityfair.com/news/2021/04/why-the-us-still-cant-donate-covid-19-vaccines-to-countries-in-need Emphasis mine:
