We need a "Inside the Crease" sub-forum under "The Rink" for us Goalies. Have to find somewhere to post this.

I'm also a new goalie. My situation is a bit different. In one day I bought E V E R Y T H I N G, but did research prior. I have little patience and started quick. You will be overwhelmed the first day on the ice. As a normal skater, I felt very uncomfortable. Almost discouraging, but you gotta work through it. I skipped the thigh guards and went with knee guards. I started with some Bauers but didn't like the hard knee cup. Then I bought Passau's and they have been the single best upgrade I've had yet. Sounds crazy but it's very true. You want to feel comfortable. I can't stress that enough. It's extremely important to "feel" good. If you haven't checked out my thread, you can see my whole progress here. Even my very first day in net!
