Guy's got skates.

Incidentally, skates are one of the big ones you DON'T want second hand if you're going that route! Things like elbows, shoulders and pants are all generally pretty safe to throw through the wash and I probably wouldn't have any qualms about getting them second-hand. Helmet you'd probably want to go new, because you never know what happened to it in it's past life and you'll want to protect your head from any accidents.

I'm not sure how cleaning shins would go but you sweat a ton down there and I wouldn't want that unless I could wash it first.

I had a friend who got all their gear second hand(including helmet and jock, the latter I found to be very gross) and a jersey and socks for $100. Came with a bag too. This was off Craigslist, and he bought it in a set.
