Hanks pads for 08-09

Not sure if anyones seen this yet, but these are the new TPS Response R10's that I assume Lundqvist will be wearing for this year...







At first sight they look pretty ugly, but I've seen some different angles and different color designs and they actually look really nice.

Any word on the size? Getting tired of Devs fans complaining about that...

Well every pad is checked by the NHL so his pads have always been legit. What I have read is that he has a 36+2 which means the thigh rise is +2 inches which is very normal, but what makes it look so big is that he has the knee part on the face of the pad moved down by TPS and thats what makes it look longer even though it really isn't.

That all could be for not though because there are new regulations that are in developement.

Besides, any size "reductions" won't take place until 2009-2010 season. Essentially, goalie equipment is sized according to proportion... you get pads that are sized to protect you, and no more than that.

Yeah, but for everyone that thinks Lundqvists thigh rise is enormous it really isn't, its because he has mods done to them to make the knee part farther down (these are a flat face and don't even have that) but his thigh rise is what 90 % of pads are out there these days, a +2. He will lose some of his extra padding just like everyone else except maybe Brodeur, he doesn't have any bigger pads than the next guy.

Just terrible. Putrid. Hard to look at. His mask is uninspired as well. It seems he just has bad taste.

Dude, all it takes is the drive to play. I started last year for my first time... and now I am playing in some pretty average leagues at Woodbridge. So go for it man.

Do you have any idea how distracting those will be for a shooter? IMO even more distracting then Fleurys old yeller pads.

Yuck, although they are certainly an improvement from last year's (which is not saying much).

Rookie year pads ftw.
