Yup, I was at Bauer and RBK/CCM headquarters. They say a lot of the pros customize the skates so there is a big difference in pro vs retail. An interesting fact is that Bauer has two lines Vapour and Supreme. I am pretty sure they said Vapour is designed with the feedback of pro's, and Supreme is designed based on feedback from retail.

Also I think about 60% of the pro's wear bauer skates.
