For light, mobile pants lots of people seem to like Tacklas as well (haven't tried them myself, but have played with tonnes of guys who own and love them), might be worth trying on too.
As was mentioned Cooperalls and Tackla girdles have been around for a long time and specifically made for ice hockey, and a lot of guys wear them today. A lot more than the few left after "virtually all" the players wearing regular hockey pants.

And can't you put shells on top of pants as well?

Thanks guys, I appreciate the input
You can put a shell on regular pants too, but unless you're playing in a league with strict uniform regulations, you don't need to.

It really boils down to personal preference.
