Personal preference? I guess that's why we're not all driving Model Ts

How many players in the NHL are using Graf compared to the number of players using Bauer?

I think that has more to do with money than anything.

Could they just let Mega be a company again, and bring back the Air 90s already?

Alot of people wish they would. But this is what we as players get for Nike getting into the sport.

No, it has to do with personal preference. I know a few current and ex-NHLers who don't like Graf. They don't like the way the skates feel and/or perform with them. I think Graf makes a good product, but they're not for everybody.

And theres alot of guys that dont wear Bauer because of the same issues. Graf doesnt have the resources to take care of players like Bauer, Easton etc. Thats the side Im coming from. Each brand has guys that wont stray and then each brand also has guys that go to another brand because of problems with the prior brand.
