I've liked how the CCM ufit 09's, warrior projekt And warrior hustler have felt, but I'm having a hard time making a decision on which way to go (some are on clearance at my LHS)
Gearheads might have a different answer, but I've always felt that comparable pricepoints/lines tend to have similar protection. A good mid-range set of shoulder pads are going to offer similar protection whether they are from Bauer, CCM, Easton etc.

I recently made the switch to a mid-level Bauer pair because a) I liked the fit the best and b) they offered a bit more protection down the front, so there was no gaps in coverage on my stomach.
