Niedermayer's shoulder pads

Behold the wonder of duct tape. I've heard Scott's been wearing those since his last season in the WHL, which makes them about 18 years old.

I like guys like McSorley. Just cups sewn onto their suspenders. I remember the horrific realisation I had seeing that for the first time. I was shocked and awed at how friggin huge Marty was.

They brought them back on the market a few years ago and they're exactly like the old model that they use to be, no bigger. Except they're brand new.

I always preferred smaller, lighter shoulder pads. I thought guys in my rec league looked ridiculous with their huge shoulder pads. Like they were ready to step onto a gridiron rather than a rink.

Well, you have to admit that there is hardly any hitting or even hard shots in the typical All Star Game. Not really a need for anything other than perhaps a cup.

Shouldn't it be called "Duck" tape?

Do you all have any links to other pictures of players without their jersey on? Always has been interesting to me to see just exactly how much protection the pros use in their games.

I loved mine. Played pee wee through Junior with them and never washed them. Finally did and they came out of the wash in pieces. Got new ones but they were too bulky so I haven't worn any for 20 years. Had surgery on both shoulders and a couple of slap shots to the chest but I guess that isn't bad for 20 years. Should have had more duct tape.

I guess this is sort of related...how many of you guys use the shirts with the building in padding as opposed to the shoulder pads? What are they like? Any good?

Thats hilarious. I had a pair a long time ago, and then bought a new pair when they reissued them, now I wear nothing.

Yeah.
Massive plastic cupped shoulder pads; check
full cage with mouth guard attached; check
massive cumbersome pants that interfere with skating; check

stick flailing helplessly carving the nearest player that actually knows how to control himself on the ice; check.

It gets pretty bad with the guys that started playing as adults sometimes.

Count me out regarding this opinion.

The pants comment mystifies me. As soon as the puck is dropped, I cannot notice any part of my equipement besides my stick and if my skates are too loose. I wear all the protection I can afford, and it never hinders me.

Plus, the whole popular opinion that guys with cages are more reckless with their sticks is a myth propgated by guys with an agenda such as Don Cherry.

For the record 99% of the guys in the NHL grew up playing with full shields. The "advantage" of not having a cage is psychological.

Regarding guys that start out as adults.... I have to agree.
