Sometimes you see them using non top end models, could be for any number of reasons really, from stiffness to fit to whatever else. They get a lot of custom options with their skates though, so if they want, for example, a less 11k skate, they can just get an 11k that is less stiff than the retail model. More often you'll see them in older top of the line models, probably because they're used to said older models. For example, a lot of CCM's top players (Ovy, Thornton, etc.) seem to be using the old U+ pro reloadeds over the new U+ CLs.
