Like skating on blades attached to ping pong balls. No kinetic feel with the ice. Gimme a pair of CCM Super Tacks, all metal chassis anyday. Way better.... then theres the sticks. All wood please.... and helmets. Should be optional from Junior up. No facemasks for forwards/defencemen in amateur....
what else ya got we should fix?
You're okay with masks on goalies? Artificial ice resurfacing? What about the forward pass?
