It's kinda sad to see this though, that just means a lot of people are taking up the time of the staff @ LHS and not buying there.
Actually, might not matter. I tried ordering a Bauer visor a few weeks ago and they contacted me saying some major brands couldn't be exported outside the USA. Easton, Bauer, Warrior.
But yeah, anything as far as fit (skates, helmet, etc) or feel (stick) I always buy from a LHS anyways. Visor one of the few exceptions, ended up buying a Hejduk brand visor from IW.
When you tack on shipping to here in Canada, often it's just better to buy local. And get them baked for free.
