I looked at new helmets recently and was disappointed in what I saw on the market. Im not sure helmet padding technology has improved over the last 10 years. In fact the inside of the bauer helmets I looked at seemed almost the same as my 5500 that is at least 10 years old. Easton seemed like their stuff was even less protective than what youd find previously since they tried to make their buckets light as a feather. All very surprising considering whats going on in the NHL as far as head injuries.
