$100 (US) to spend at a Hockey Pro Shop

I received a $100 gift certificate for the local Hockey Shop for Xmas. I'm pretty happy with the gear I have now, and I don't really need to upgrade any equipment, as I only play in Beer-League level pick-up games. Any suggestions on what to spend my $100 on?

Could always pick up a composite stick if you don't have one. I bought one and don't really like mine, though, so maybe that's not the best route.

Skate guards? Maybe a cheap stick and a roller hockey ball to practice shooting around? Do you have roller blades?

Save it until you can use it for something, like if your stick breaks, rather than waste it on a bunch of little things you don't really need.

Depends if you a gear ***** like me....but apparel is always good since you can use it outside of the rink. But a composite stick is always nice.

oileral, you from HK? Just noticd the little flag there.

Save it until you need it for something. Just don't buy to buy.

Spend all of it on leg tape. You know you want to!

A drying rack? Your gear's getting pretty stinky.

Besides what's been mentioned, how about a wheelie bag?

I'd use it towards the costs of a new OPS. Or if you see something going like the palms in your gloves or whatever then replace that.

if you're happy with all your stuff, save it until you need to replace something.

I'd get a composite shaft and blade, but that'd probably be more than $100.
