Sittler wore them as did Jere Gillis (both guys wore them only for 1-2 seasons tops I think). I loved those skates, and owned a pair myself. Inexplicably, Jere Gillis was a favorite player of mine.
Does anyone recall what those skates were called?
Also, on the subject of skates, recall the old, hard shell Lange and Micron skates? I believe Kevin Lowe sported the Micron's for a few years.
Also, the old Daoust skates....
While these skates were all pretty unpopular, it seems like really defensive d-men often preferred the hard shell Lange or Micron's, while speedy, offensive (usually french) players would wear the Daoust's.
