Who wears the TPS gloves? I know Clarkson has eagle gloves, but I am still trying to get my head around someone wearing a pair of TPS gloves

I am also happy about Bauer being the top brand ever sine being a fanboy of them

Other way around, TPS no longer produces hockey gear.

Thought Warrior would have a higher % of the stick category. Especially after Zetterberg left Easton for Warrior and Chara hit nearly 109.

I did read somewhere that most players seem to use Reebok protective gear. Their stuff is basically the Jofa stuff and it's pretty nice.

I've become a lover of Bauer over the past couple years. I have to go pick up some new sticks and I'm heavily considering switching from Easton to Bauer.

I use Bauer gloves, that's about it. The stick is really the main thing though. I use Ai.9s right now which are Reebok.



I also have a Warrior Widow laying around.



I know quite a few guys who do swear by the high end Bauer sticks though so Ièm not surprised by the findings.

I think it mostly depends on the relationship between the teams and the company reps.

Personally I'd love to have some kind of sweet deal with Bauer or Warrior. Both make great stuff. Not so big on Easton.

Guys in the AHL pretty much have to use Reebok stuff though, which is why you see most of the callups using that gear.

I find it that Bauer is really good all around. You can never go wrong with their products..

Other top brands i find specalize in certain things and are hit and miss at others, like the reebok protective equip. and the easton sticks or warrior with the franchise gloves

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.
