you like them for the right reason then...When Sergei Fedorov left Nike and went to Graf he was expecting more than getting his skates paid for. What he got was a message from his agent telling him that they don't pay Jagr to wear em, so why would they pay Sergei?? I was told this by a source inside the Graf company. It shouldn't make a huge difference, but it just goes to show that these guys are making a living on their skates and some are taking less money because they prefer GRAF's product.
