That's the other one I remember...

The box-Jofa guys: Petr Klima, Patrick Sundstrom (burst on to the scene), Kjell Samuelsson, Christian Ruutu, their must be more.

The round-Jofa (I can't believe that peice of paper was legal)... Gretz, Mcsorley, many goons...

I also remember Gainey sans helmut and with a crazy looking bucket helmut...

I wore Cooper-alls and an xl-7... looking back those are possibly the two worst peices of hockey equipment that ever graced the retail shelves.

The one issue I agree with Grapes on is that the new equipment has contributed to the severity of injuries... I also think Grapes and his glorification of the hits and fights has contributed to these injuries... I know that it certainly had an impact on the way I played (running around trying to hit people).



I only wore them for a year before switching to the Messier-looking one.
