No problem, good luck getting back into it. I was out for almost 2.5 years from a knee reconstruction + a car crash...completely lost my slapshot over that time haha.
Nah I don't play. Horrible skater lol... I considered taking up goaltending for fun and playing open hockey there for a while until I was comfortable then getting on a team but haven't had the money.

I'll probably be at that game Tuesday.

Picked up a Backstrom Vapor X-15, a Vector Thornton wood and some Bauer Vapor gloves. I didn't break the bank 'cause I'll probably only play a few times while I'm here but I really like the Backstrom models. Lie is a bit different, I'm used to playing with a Sakic, but once I got in my hand I knew it was the stick for me. I'll definitely invest in a higher end one when I move back to NJ.

Also, after being a bit nervous about pulling out my old Jofa helmet, I was pleasantly surprised when everyone was digging my "retro" bucket helmetThe whole staff got a kick out of it. They put in a new Itech half shield and I'm all set to go. I hope I don't "Clarkson" all over the place
It was nice to meet you.

Seriously, any time you decide that you want a current model helmet...bring in your Jofa and I'll buy you a new Bauer and we'll trade. I absolutely love that bucket.

For those of you wondering what the helmet looks like...think Mike Peluso, missing his last shift in '95 because he was crying on the bench as we were about to win the cup



By the way...don't worry about being "high maintenance" as there is pretty much nothing myself or my guys like doing more than talking hockey equipment. It really is a great thing to enjoy what you do for a living.

The turnout at Union will be pretty good. Expect a full game, multiple lines type situation. If you HF'ers want to play together, bring two jerseys so we can match up. Learn towards dark I think.

Goalies, show up early or bring stuff to skate out.
you mean you're going to have enough goalies now? i'm considering coming out...

Also since I am here.

Mens League All star game at aspen was really nice how they did it. All our families were there plus the people that were there for the public skate watched on and off too, so it was a nice crowd. 13 skaters each team. They had matching jerseys and socks for both teams. Played music and announced penalties and goals and all that good stuff. Played 2 25 minute periods and had an ice cut in between. Named an MVP of the game and gave them a CCM U+stick. I had 2 goals but my team still lost 7-5.

No for what everyone cares about.. my TOTALONE review. Puck feels real good on the blade. The mid kick-point really makes a difference compared to the low kick point most sticks have. You can feel the whip in the kick point when you wind up. The puck floats right off the stick when you release both wristers and slappers. I think the best thing was that I still got a lot behind my show when I didn't get a good shot because of a rolling puck or a odd angle in which I ripped it from. I believe this is from the mid kick point as well. Over all, It is worth the 225 for sure. As long as you put it to good use and know how to use it's features to the max, you will get everything you want out of this stick, Totally worth the investment

I'll be there, at least for a little while. Still have an injury, but I need to get some movement going.

Sad news, my S17 is on its way out, the blade is starting to crack down the middle.

Anyone have any suggestions for a replacement? I've been looking at the Bauer Vapors, but don't know much about them. I'm sort of on a budget so I'd be willing to go as high as $120. I'm thinking of just saving up and getting the new S15, seems like a cheaper version of the S17.

Thoughts?

I was skating today at a rink and had my skates sharpened, but they felt totally weird after that. I asked the security guy skating around if their sharpener was any good and he said it was absolutely terrible

Does anybody know where is a good place to get skates sharpened? I live in Princeton but usually goes to Edison for skating, though.
