If you are complaining about the mobility of modern shoulder pads, you have not tried on the pads made in the past few years.
The low to mid level Reeboks and Eastons have excellent coverage, low pro caps, and are not bulky or restrictive. Not a big fan of Bauer or Warrior personally. Haven't seen the new CCM's.
I have. There's a reason plenty of pros still opt for the 5030's despite having access to the top of the line gear for free. Please tell me, how far removed are you from playing contact hockey?
