Federov can pull them off. That was prime time for him 97/98.

I have been to a few tourny's in Senior in different parts of Canada and the US and chirping is still quite common.

Maybe it is less common at lower levels, but A and B it is quite common.

I cant see how anyone who has spent time in Minor hockey or spent a significant time playing any organized hockey doesnt know what beaking is.
Chirping about gear just seems to occur everywhere you go.

<<<<< I am late to my own party.

Known as 'Red Helmut' I put the opposition into automatic rage at the sight of my circa 80's Red Army lid.

The torn ear piece?

Ya...someone ripped it right off my head once.

I refuse not to wear it and I enhance the entire aura by lighting up your goalie like a birthday cupcake.

Someone asked before but never got an answer - what's wrong with the half visor half cage? I've been chirped (at pickup....) for it, but I tried the full cage and had trouble with it.

I'd probably elbow you in the face and then chirp at you for getting elbowed in the face by a girl.

I hate guys that chirp at girls just for being girls.

LOL

I never got chirped but I'm happy to not be playing around you guys

I wear number 69 and got the aviator visor (not tinted) with a bauer 9500 team canada helmet (heard a helmet is one of the most important piece of equipement).

I was actually thinking of getting the cage/visor combo but seems I will get seriously ripped on the ice...I just heard that a cage screws up your vision and that the combo lets you see better...

Mind you, i'm playing beginner ice hockey so...

BTW, I never chirp at anybody except the occasional dirty ******* but that's only in ballhockey.

The better you are the more style you are allowed to have, imo.

Just don't wear a fishbowl. Ever.

Nobody at beginner hockey chirps anyone because they're fully aware they can't play either. Don't worry about it.

Also if someone wearing a cage gets in a fight they are immediately suspended where as a non cage wearer only gets a major. Now they switched the rule that you are just not allowed to wear cages all together unless you have a doctors note.

Also I agree sweatpants in a pickup game or outside rink is fine, when you are playing in a tournament or even league game just spend the $30 on a closeout pair of pants so you don't look like a total bender. Also most rinks don't have AC and can get very hot in the summer time, I don't know how guys in sweatpants can even handle the heat.

[QUOTE=What would the doctor's note have to say? Something like, "My patient has a condition which makes being hit in the face injurious to his health, and his face."[/QUOTE]

One of the guys got caught with his head down and ended up with his jaw wired shut. When he got back from recovery and could play again he had a doctors note stating he needed to wear one until his jaw was 100% healed. Could also be for previous eye injuries of for whatever reason you see an NHLer wearing a cage for a couple games.

I don't play roller, but I have several friends that do and about 15 that have played at some point in the MLRH and they have all unilaterally said that the MLRH is by far the worst league they have ever played in, pretty much in all aspects on and off rink. A rule like that doesn't surprise me coming from them.

Not sure when they played but things have gotten better over the years. I personally think its a joke when people call it professional hockey, thats why I didn't refer to it as such, you only make money if you win, its kind of like a poker game but you play hockey instead of cards. It is the equivalent of playing NARCh Platinum or TORHS Pro Tier 2 but with full contact. I agree they have some stupid rules but it is fun to be able to travel every couple of weeks and play 3 or 4 games against a different set of people, compared to playing the same 5 teams every week of the season.
