goalie skates/mask

I was just looking for some recommendations for a goalie mask and skates. I'm 23, just starting out (literally, i've never played hockey) and I'm just looking for some rec stuff. I want adequate protection, and while I'd rather do it as cheaply as possible, these are two pieces of equipment I'm not going to skimp on.

I've been to two different rinks in my area (i live in north new jersey) and was fitted to a size 9 wide, and literally no shop around here carries goalie skates in wide sizes. I found some CCM vector 6.0 in my size online, but no shop around here carries them, I don't know how they fit, etc. Any advice would be appreciated.

Also, for the mask...any opinions appreciated. I was hoping to spend around $200 on the mask, but if all the ones in that price range are inadequate, I will pay more.

thanks...
