Epuck has the blade I want, plus the cheap prices. Awesome.

any order placed to a USA location shipped into Canada will result in a border "brokers feer" by the Canadian side. Depending on the price of the total order, it can raise the price from 15.00 to 240.00 US dollars. A 250.00US shipment into Canada added a 40US brokers fee I had to pay on a glove return. You will also have to pay the taxes. The only way to avoid the brokers fee is if the customs declaration form has the "gift" box checked. No fee and no taxes in that situation.

Yeah, I know, it's a bummer but it still winds up cheaper with this hockey stuff. Ordering golf equipment is usually even worse.

Monkey's good and they're good about accepting returns if you need to change sizes.

I hear horrid things about Monkey's customer service among other things...Giant is ok. I'd order from eastwesthockey, icewarehouse, inlinewarehouse, or epuck before any other. But my facorite is hockey.com....very very low prices and even cheaper shipping.

You weren't kidding about hockey.com...geez that's cheap! We get ripped off so badly here in Canada.

Hockeymonkey.com and Greatskate.com are the two I order from. I haven't had a problem with either one.

I agree about monkey and epuck. Hockeygear.com is one of my favorites also. Got my Tackla girdle and shells from there and my itech visor/mask.

Not sure if anyone can help,but I was going to order the CCM Super Tacks 892 T blades from hockeymonkey this morning ,but I see they no longer have the size I need 6 D, I have hunted all morning and have not found anywhere that has this skate I've checked the sites you have listed and have not seen it. Am I missing somewhere? I am desperate to find them. Only place that had them was some dealer in the UK and I am not going to order outside of NA. Thanks for any help.
