Best brick/mortar store in NYC/NJ/LI area

Hi guys

I need to get gear, I already have skates, but I need pretty much all my pads and I'm looking for a shop that has a large variety of gear/pads to try on so that I can try on as many options as possible.

I see that the online retailers like Pure Hockey (http://www.purehockey.com/locations/...FIELD&state=NJ) and Hockey Monkey (http://www.monkeysports.com/woodbridge) have stores in New Jersey. I'd be willing to travel there if someone can vouch for their selection and staff.

Beyond that, is there any store on Long Island not SUPER far from the city (ideally within an hour drive) that's really good in terms of selection and staff?

Looking to go Saturday. Any guidance on this would be great.

The closest store to me is Westside Skate and Stick but their selection is super barebones.

Thanks in advance!

Try the Sports Plus store in Westchester Skating Academy; they seem to have a large inventory and offer very competitive pricing. The Hockey Monkey store in NJ is not far, but it has reduced its hockey inventory significantly compared to when it first opened, and has set aside a lot of floor space to baseball and lacrosse.

Still the biggest hockey selection I've ever seen in person.. has everything you'd ever need. I love that place.

Hockey Haus is great. Best place in the area to get your skates sharpened, as well. Also a good place to catch a Rangers game with the owner. If they're playing, it's on the TV.

Pure Hockey just opened up a store in Carle Place on Glen Cove Road. TONS of sticks and TONS of gloves. As for pads, they have a small but good selection, the store is pricy though. The staff was very nice and helpful though.

EDIT: Missed the post above me talking about it.

I don't understand how they will survive stocking that much. Foot traffic can't be that great and with high prices people will just sample the gear there and buy online like most people already do at pro shops.
