I'm no Sidney Crosby, but I'm probably an above average B level player. This guy told me that my skates should be in the $350 range.

I'm starting to consider it, but I would like some advice before I invest that kind of money. I don't really pay attention to new gear except for hockey sticks. I'd also like to stick with bauer since the pair I have now is pretty comfortable.
If the guy has never seen you skate, and if he owns the shop, he's probably just trying to sell you a pair of skates.

How long have you been skating/playing???
