I was also looking at the Bauer 8090's, anyone have an opinion on those skates?

I currently own a pair of Bauer 7000's and love them, but they are around four years old and being a player and a ref I usually skate around 175-200 icetimes a year so they are on their last legs.

Also, does anyone know when The Hockey News releases its annual skate guide.


I love my 8090s. They've been comfortable since the first time I put them on. They're pretty light too; much lighter than the regular 8000, and they don't look like a space boot.
