Buying gloves (need advice)

So, I'm trying to get into hockey, and I'm slowly trying to acquire the necessary equipment (can't afford to do it all at once). So I'm looking to buy some gloves, and a had a few questions that I hoped you awesome, knowledgeable people could help me with.

1) When I went to buy skates, I was told to go to a LHS (great advice), since they can help fit you and recommend skates. For gloves, is this as important, or is fit more of just a personal preference thing? I'm not planning on buying gloves over the internet, I'd still want to go to a store and try them on, but the LHS by me is small and doesn't have a huge selection.

2) How much do you think is reasonable to spend on gloves (and are there any ones you would recommend)? Most of the stuff I read online is about the newest stuff - Supreme One90's, Vapor XXX, etc, which I'm guessing are more than I need and want to spend. Would the lower level models of those (Supreme 70, 50, or Vapor XX, XV) be about the level I'm looking for?

Any thoughts or comments would be appreciated!
