I hear that one guy from the Mighty Ducks movies was pretty good at it. The old guy, what's his name? I think he might be dead now though...




But seriously, i think it pretty much comes down to locality. Different shops with different staff are going to be more/less competent. Here, Source for Sports spent a ton of money and effort making sure they had the best equipment and very capable people doing the work. When i lived elsewhere, i found a guy at Sportchek who was pretty good, and found most of the people at that location to be fine. But it can vary from store to store and person to person within each store.

I wouldn't ever dare take skates to Canadian Tire for sharpening though. Seriously, that's rolling the dice on whether or not it will even be as good as those goofy ass skate sharpening machines that they used to have in some rinks.
