And also with the non-bulkiness of his stuff, it all fits into like a tiny gym bag. Apparently he dude bought his stuff brand new in like the 50-60s and is still using them after playing in the leagues for forever.
I'd mention he was quite deceiving, thinking we need to take it easy on the old guy, but he plays a nice brand of Nic Lidstrom defense still!
Lol yeah, a guy I play pickup with on Tuesday nights still has the old cooper shoulder pads. I think it's great, they definately don't make him look like a NFL linebacker like some of the guys' pads, and really it's all you need for non-check hockey.
