i can say from experience that wearing shoulder pad or not, if you get hit the right right or go into the boards the right way you will damage your shoulder. i separated my shoulder last Feb but losing a edge and going into the end boards and i was wearing shoulder pads.

What's with all of the hero comments?

You are the one who tries to look like the superstar...

Unless you are on hockeydb, you're a nobody just like the rest of us...

LOL this thread is a riot.

Over the years I have tried to work my own style. I wear what's comfortable and wear it so it is comfortable.

First, everythingis black (gloves, helemt, pants, and socks...no stripes either). Black goes with everything and it's easy enough to find black gear.

I like big jerseys, but not for the look. I like to be able to move around. If it's really warm I'll pull the back of my jersey up over the back of my pants just to let a little air in, but I don't tuck.

No ones looking at your laces or the zippers on your pants if you're making plays.

Socks and shins over the skate tongue with the back of my skate uncovered. I tuck my jersey into my elbow pads. I do it for comfort not looks.

I guess you might describe my look as "retro" I don't tuck in the jersey, the skate tounge of my 12 year old skates are on the outside and I wouldn't be caught dead with colored laces. If I could find high cuff gloves I'd wear them too. In fact if I take many more shots off the feet I'm going to go on the lookout for some Lange's

My kids are the opposite. Tuck the sweater, tuck the tounges, only shiny expensive composite sticks will do.

What are Bure's flaps?


I tuck my jersey in, and I pull my socks down over my skates because it looks cool, but everything else is for performance only.

I think I'm going to try leaving my tendon guard exposed though, for more forward-flex.

Socks over the tongue only, feels better when I skate for some reason. Tuck in the back of my jersey only cause it's huge.

Form fitted jersey is a musc so you can make out each ripple of muscle on my body, obviously.

I put white out all over my skates to... white them out. White is the new black. Pink laces so my skates look like ice creams with diamond encrusted blades to match my chains.

My stick is platinum plated and I use aluminum work tape for the blade and butt end.

someone said "if you're not on hockeydb then beat it" . i said hockey db doesn't list stats from some great leagues like canadian junior b leagues. it lists some horrible american leagues, but not junior b or even c that would probably murder most competetive leagues in the states. so being on hockey db doesn't mean you dont play in some highly competetive leagues.

Ralph lists pretty much whatever people send him. If you're upset that "horrible American leagues" are on there, then SEND HIM THE STATISTICS YOU HAVE FOR THE CANADIAN LEAGUES. It's that simple.

It's like people *****ing about my page not having some obscure goaltender on it - if people ask, I'll usually add the goaltender.

Of course, it's a lot easier to ***** and moan on a message board than actually doing something about it.

And I'd love to hear which "horrible American leagues" you're referring to, but we'd probably just end up finding out what a xenophobe you are. So forget it.

To address this directly, I'm 100 percent positive that you don't play in a "highly competitive league".

He doesn't do midget stats.

You'll see Jr. A, you'll see B every once in a while, but rarely any level lower.

Of course CHL and NCAA stats are kept meticulously. If you play for your school and it is a reasonably well-known one, it will probably be on there.

Ah, that tired refrain.

Yes, I play ice hockey. I'm very easy to find in real life, so I'll let you go ahead and do the legwork.

I guess the only thing that's very noticeable about me is my wrists/forearms are exposed because I like wearing small gloves and I push my sleeves up without really noticing it. Soooo dangerous.

Oh yeah and I must have a weird head shape, my helmet rides down on my eyebrows a la Souray sometimes but not as low.

I don't care about murdering leagues in the states. Junior B is nothing special. I'm Canadian by the way so I know exactly what level of hockey you are talking about.

Awesome season in 80-81 and you made it into the top 2% W.Wide.


Doug "The Mad Kobold" , remind me to never engage in debate with you, esp in mathematics.

" "Maybe in order to understand mankind, we have to look at the word itself.
Mankind. Basically, it's made up of two separate words---"mank" and "ind".
What do these words mean? It's a mystery, and that's why so is mankind."
- Deep Thought, Jack Handey "

very interesting "leg work" in looking you up. pretty cool stuff. I have looked at your tenders home page at least a hundred times but never checked the link about yourself. Nice to catch a glimpse of the guy behind the page. Thanks for the resource.

Thanks for the kind words - I enjoy running the site a lot (even if it tends to overwhelm me at times - I still run it by myself), but the most enjoyment I get from it is knowing that others enjoy it and make use of it.

I was impressed with some of the names in your draft year. One guy taken after you had an ok NHL career, Chris Chelios.

When I was in the OHA, teams looked at the CHL even more exclusively than they do now.

They were impressed by my stats (I did excel that year), but unfortunately, it was never to be...


EDIT: However, one good thing came out of my hockey career; I picked up a nickname: "Gerky."
