Like Quasi Moto with a Northlands' Junior Pro. All elbows & stick. Wicked.
I know it's not exactly equipment but some folks have included physical attributes...I remember his doo and fu were part of his bad boy image.
As far as his shooting style, I wonder if it exacerbated his hip / joint problems....the guy has been walking with a cane for a long time. I remember him skating with a lower, leaning over style, especially on the forecheck and whenever he used his patented sweep check. The guy abused his body in so many different ways.
