Uniform wise things are good. The alternative (
roller hockey pants
or cooperalls)... uh no.
The new sleaker jerseys are kinda cool, but I think I still prefer the baggier CCMs.
Don't knock 'em till you've tried 'em. The roller hockey pants I wear are worn with an ice hockey girdle and I tape the legs the same way one would tape their socks.
I don't see what all the hubbub is about thinking roller hockey pants don't belong in ice hockey. They are cool, much cooler than pants and socks. They are also a lot less restrictive than hockey pants.
The only Cooper-All product I owned were elbow pads with the Armor foam stuff which I retired last year as they were finally falling apart from age and use.
What I do want to try are some Tackla hockey pants perported to be the BEST and most comfortable hockey pant by some guys in here I trust the opinions of.
