I've worn ccm and bauers (only bauers once I got to be a better skater). They don't seem "better" to me. I would have gotten ccm instead because my current bauer is giving me soreness once I hit the 30 minute mark. Ccm skates have better thermal moulding properties

I honestly don't think there's any difference for an average player. Top end skates like the x7.0 will be similar to the other lines. Easton skates are the least popular.

I wouldn't have any trouble buying skates from reebok, ccm , bauer. Bauer is the "nike" of hockey and the most popular brand but its not always the best.. All the skates have similarly stiff boots. Worry about price and fit before brands.
