    cant speak on other goalies but Lehner I know tried a few sticks at the start of the 18-19 isles season, he had a warrior foamcore, than a cr1, than a v1 i believe, then used a cr2 , and stuck with it for the entirety of the year. I asked a goalie monkey rep about it, and he bought the remaining stock of CR2s in Blue, with the Bishop curve, and a 25 inch paddle. He got a bunch of different custom sticks during his hawks tenure, so i assume he just wanted to use his oddly beloved cr2s till he didnt have any more.

    ahh gotcha. I figured since they said it was similar to speedskin but not quite it was more specifically designed for them. I havent followed Brians super closely honestly, but if i was to leave warrior (which i wont 😼 @Kirk3190 ) I would totally get Gnetiks. The Primo seriously impressed me when I checked them out on the gnetik ivs and optiks in person. Could totally see them being the best sliding pad on the market even if that can be more subjective.

    ccm revolutions have double inner and single outer, warrior g3s do as well unless im mistaken all the current lines are single inner and outer but the v9s are very soft so are gnetiks if you broke them in theyd totally play like a double inner break

    could it also be that they've only figured how to make fast glide in white so far? assuming that due to it still being a relatively new material still to the production lines, it could be only producible in white. Likely, you're right though, it costs a fortune to get the materials for pads, Lefevre can't afford that at from an investment standpoint right now, they would lose thousands of dollars from how big a surplus of colored fast glide coated jenpro rolls/sheets they end up having. Primo/Opti Slide was also offered in Black, White, and Grey the first year they had it, which was the O
  5. nicee, hopefully covid doesn't ruin that. I've seen that hockey's been labeled as a superspreader, same w all the other indoor sports. who yall playing?

    Lehner used his Isles sticks for a little while he was on Chicago
  7. Weve been practicing once a week for high school hockey since September. I've heard that all school sports are expected to start around January-ish as far as actually playing in games go, but nothing is set in stone still and there is no schedule outside of practices currently. With cases rising around me recently, I really hope they can still make it work that we practice and eventually get a game schedule.
  8. As long as the lace doesnt get further undone from there, I couldn't imagine it being a large issue

    yea i can imagine, as a whole the core on g5 is definetley stiffer than the g4 though

    I use warrior g4s right now, had them all of 2020 so far, so i can speak for them. I wouldnt consider them a stiff pad at all. gt2 is pretty soft as well too. G5 is a lot stiffer though
  11. Awesome! Glad I could help you, hopefully you get a good deal on em hahah
  12. heres a full set I found in 34+1.5, not sure if theyre in your budget but worth a look! Theyre a steal for the condition it seems. https://sidelineswap.com/gear/hockey/goalie/goalie-full-sets/2594190-brian-s-brian-s-g-netik-pro-4-goalie-full-set-34-1-5
  13. Hell probably report to the minors unless Sorokin struggles, I dont see them keeping him up w the Islanders. His contract is 1 year, 700k he is incredibly low risk, but potentially high reward if he does well. Maybe hes flipped at the deadline to a rebuilding team? Guess well see
  14. awesome stuff! Kids got a huge future for sure!!
  15. TGC has all black in 34+1.5 Brians thigh rises run gigantic so Id assume theyre too big for you, but worth a look- https://www.thegoaliecrease.com/product/brian-s-gnetik-iv-sr-pro-pads/
  16. We all know the big ones so far of Holtby to the Canucks, Hank to the Capitals, Markstrom to Calgary, etc., but Schneider is now on the Isles (?) Prob one of the most shocking ones to me. With Sorokin seemingly ready to play, I wonder if this will be a 3 goalie rotation all season long, If Schneider is moved at the deadline, etc. Hes going to be fine, especially under Korn, but I dont understand the move. Thoughts?
  17. the toe shape isnt the most important part of the stick in any regard lol
  18. I can't really tell a difference tbh. i've used both and have not been able to tell much of a difference myself i've seen people say the square toe lines up better on the board when stopping dump ins but that's such a small amount of space youre talking at that point, i'd put that more on your technique than stick. some say the round toes easier to handle the puck with but imo it's more about the feel of the stick rather than the build if that makes sense. ive used round toe before (fav stick prior to my current warrior m1 was my ccm p2.9) and it handled the puck great, as does my c
  19. heres a pair of mike hutchisons pro returns, not too worn. look to be in good shape https://sidelineswap.com/gear/hockey/goalie/goalie-gloves-blockers/1236397-ccm-hutchison-pro-return-extreme-flex-pro-4-glove-set
  20. not sure about the epic but the v7 is listed as a 45-50 degree break.

    Lefevre going solo

    I think it might force Lefevre away from their small business Canadian made only mindset that they've adopted since the divorce between them and ccm. I don't think the canadian gear is outstanding by any means, but the bars pretty low w the build of the chinese made CCM gear from recent years, so it may just look better by default. I was impressed by the Lefevre stuff I saw in person, though.

    their retail gears been crappy build wise but thats the overseas made gear. The canadian made pads and gloves I have seen have had great quality. The L12.1 pads i saw in store felt and looked so much better built than the overseas built eflex 4s. Same with the gloves.

    Lefevre going solo

    Lefevre has a more respected name in my opinion than True does in my opinion. Not a surprise granted the legacy carried by Lefevre, but they definitely both help each other. I don't understand this duo though from a manufacturing standpoint. Lefevres all about old school, hand making their gear and making anything to leave the shop perfect. Trues turned to more of a mass production and over the years has put less and less emphasis on the quality and craftsmanship of their skates and sticks. I cant speak on the durability from a first hand standpoint but I have seen countless tr
  24. Hutton, Rinne, Lehner, Grubauer, Francouz, Hellebuyck, Miller, Shesterkin, Jones, Nilsson, Koskinen, Georgiev, Lindgren, and Saros, are who I know for 1pc. Like mentioned by @creasecollector mentions, Saros has used both. Ullmark, Varlamov, Bernier, Rask, Markstrom, Hart, Hank, and Murray are who I know for 2pc. 1pc is all around definitely more popular at the NHL level, even if my lists are not 100% of the people on both sides. Also, wouldn't count on a reply from Tim. He not only does not work for True anymore but he hasn't been active in over a calendar year at this point in
