After 25 years of playing, all I've realized I need is a skate that fits and is well-constructed, relatively light made by a reputable brand, and it makes no difference if that skate is from 2012 or 2007. Losing 20grams will make no difference for anyone, ever. I actually think Graf makes the best skates, and they've done less in terms of "innovation" (i.e.: Marketing) than Bauer or RBK.
Skating is about technique. It can be coached, but really, in many ways, it's derivative of talent.
That is what we've been saying for three pages now...
