Just easily this.

There are some bad color schemes in here, but that is just custom colors... obviously some will be bad. This is a standard color mass produced piece. Astonishingly bad.

Seriously. I started playing months ago and wanted the classic CCM helmet but couldn't find one at my store.

This. I still wear the CCM HT2 helmet and no one has every dropped a comment about it. If I was wearing a JOFA or Winwell bucket I'm sure I'd hear otherwise. Or maybe this one:



Now THAT'S bad. The concerning thing is a lot of the more recent helmet models look like this, especially any Easton model and to a lesser extent the Reebok 11K model (the 7K model is waaaay better).

The profile of that Nike helmet looked like a walnut.

Ebay is your friend. I've picked up a couple of HT2s that way.

Jagr uses a Reebok Ribcor stick. The cooper helmet mentioned above is definitely the ugliest piece of equipment I've ever seen.

My favorite stick in terms of look is :



The red Bauer Total One is a close second though.

^^^ Here long-time Leaf & one time King shows off the perhaps ugliest skates ever manufactured, Lange Skates. These things were quite popular for a time in the mid-70's, giving birth to competitors equally hideous like Micron. One piece molded plastic boot. Beyond ugly.



^^^ Butch Goring's "Snap" Brand helmet. His father bought him that when he was a kid, wearing it through amateur, Junior, his entire NHL career.... Endearing that he'd do so, but definitely ugly.

Wow, you're right. Thought he was in Warrior at the beginning of the season, but going back I see some Reebok and, oddly, a Bauer at one point, though I'm not sure if it was an old pic.

What of this... affectionatly known as the "goon bucket". They loved it because it was tough to get a a full punch onto you square. Many a hand and finger was broken trying to box your opponent with this heavy duty trash can on.

On the other hand, some may laugh, but I played with the original Jofa "broomball" helmet as well as this model

It was actually a great helmet... feather lite and offered reasonable padding, unlike the Gretzky famous model, a mere milk jug with a strap!

Used to wear Lange skates as a kid back in the 70s.

From items I have worn, I'll match your Lange skates



and raise you an XL7


a Jofa 390 (still wearing these helmets)


and what I think is a much uglier earlier Jofa (280?)

Heck, I was already old in the mid seventies you young pup!

So I'll see your Jofa's and toss down 2 of my own.



I do believe your ugly 280 was the helmet worn by the Soviets at Lake Placid.

Sheesh. I think even my Cooper XL7 might offer have offered marginally more protection than those Jofas. Then again, the same could be said for my mom's old tupperware.
