Your holiday wishlist

So far I've been pretty good at fending off my desire to buy all sorts of new equipment. I'm probably looking to buy myself a 2nd set of goalie pads (leg, blocker, glove) for my outdoor ball hockey league. I've been using my ice hockey stuff out there, so my white equipment has been getting a little dirty outdoors.

My primary wishlist:

CCM10 Roller Hockey Leg Pads (Black/Red) ($99): For the price, these pads are quite awesome as a set to play outdoors with. Same graphic design as the Heaton 10's, except the pad color is black. The width is only 11" apparently, but I probably wouldn't have even noticed if I hadn't seen the specs online.

Mission Motion Lite Blocker (Black/Red) ($89): Again, a pretty nice product for the price range that it's in. The matching CCM10 blocker/glove are kinda flimsy.

Mission Motion Lite Glove (Black/Red) ($89): My conscience is pulling me back from buying a new set of ice gear, and using my current pads for outdoor use.......this glove is shaped differently than others I've tried, but I have trouble catching balls with gloves designed to catch pucks. This one feels like something in between a regular goalie glove and a baseball mitt.

==========

Gifts for others:

CCM 452 Radioactive Gloves (Blue/Silver) ($49): Sadly I ordered these for my ex-girlfriend, and it took me awhile to find somebody that sold these discontinued models with custom colors to match her favorite colors. Unfortunately there's a voice in the back of my head that thinks she's still worth caring about.

Itech goalie neckguard ($29): For a goalie buddy who is about to try out ice hockey for the first time.

Easton Z-Carbon blade (Iginla?) ($49): Dunno why, but I felt a noticeable change in weight going to a Z-Carbon blade from an Ultra Lite. My cousin already has a couple of nice shafts, so I figure I'd hook him up with a nice blade since all his other gear is practically new.
