Does a pair of $600 skates make THAT MUCH of a difference then a $200 pair

To a certain extent. Great for grabbing gloves and certain protective and accessories (jerseys and socks), sticks as well if you can use the flex.
Helmets though, I would be more careful finding the proper fitting one that's NEW and unused (don't know if the foams have broken down after impacts).
Also it depends on exactly WHICH team the sale is for. Have you seen Leafs prices? Almost quadruple what you'd see on teams south of the border
Pro stock skates are very tricky as they were custom made for someone else's foot with features you often would not find in retail. Unless you're a competent skater and you know for sure exactly what type of fit and size you are, I would not consider prostock.
But then again, most prostock gear (protective and skates especially) is technically too much for any rec league player or beginner.
