Sounds like the guy was giving you a bit of a sales pitch to buy his product. I've only skated in Bauer and CCM's, i prefer the CCM's for the fit but i wouldn't say they are of inferior quality to the Bauer's. I'm not an expert but i would imagine that the top of the line skates from each brand would be fairly similar in quality.
