Quick, I need recomendations on Skates!!

Last night at rec league my 5k Skates broke, and I am done with those pieces of junk. The blade fell off the skate, and the skates are in terrible condition. Anyways, I have Midget hockey tonight and need skates before then. Anyone have any recommendations?

Try to keep recommendations under $500, and as light and durable as possible.

So far I am considering:
Bauer Supreme One 80's
Maybe Bauer Vapor 6.0's
CCM U+ Crazy Lights (2010)

Are the Easton EQ 50's nice?
I'll check this thread right after work praying for some answers.

You need to get fitted properly. $500 skates that don't fit will completely ruin your skating ability.

This is the FINAL ANSWER

Seriously, if you're pressed for time, SKIP YOUR GAME and get skates properly fitted. Just going into a shop and buying a pair in your size is a recipe for disaster.
