Warrior's been making big progress with their protective gear. Not sold on their sticks yet...
I have been using their projekt shin pads for a few years now and I am quite impressed. I picked up a pair of Franchise pants and gloves last year and have been happy as well. Nothing will ever separate me from my Jofa/Reebok shoulder and elbow pads though.
Most of the Kings are using a mix of all brands but besides Kopitar, Quick and Westgarth, I dont think Warrior is well represented. I dont think any of the guys use the Franchise gloves which is pretty rare now a days.
Datsyuk must use a really long stick? I know a lot of guys around here strongly advocate using a stick that's no higher than the bottom of your chin on skates, but his is clearly up to his nose/eyes.
A lot of forwards that care about their defense use a longer stick for the reach. People suggest using a stick no higher than the bottom of your chin on skates to help with stickhandling, but using a stick anywhere from chest to forehead is not a problem if you are a strong player. Which, obviously, Datsyuk is.
