what skates are these...?

Anybody know what skates Gonchar, Malkin & Fedetenko are using? I watched a Pens game last night and couldn't figure it out. I always try and see what equipment different players are using (just for fun). I asked the same question last year when Gonchar came back late in the season and seemingly woore the exact same pair. I found it strange because I thought Malkin was a "Bauer guy"... but I also saw him playing with an S19 stick.

Can anyone shed some light on this...?

-------
EDIT just saw a pic of Fedetenko with One95s so I guess the 3rd guy wearing them was someone else......

There these skates by a company called Dasc. Mario may or may not be investing in it. There is not to much information on them yet but i found the patent a little while ago.

everything cb stated was correct. they've now put a website out and the name is now mlx. the website is www.mlxskates.com .
rumored to be extremely pricey.

Also available only to pros at this point.

And yes, Mario is part of it, hence the name.

I really like the blade centering feature. Not sure how practical it is, but it makes total sense and is a nice feature.

"Practical" and "Cost efficient" have no meaning with these skates. That's why they're crazy expensive and pro only.

Although, according to the site, they're going to be available to the public eventually, which I guess is why they want people to sign up to be testers.

I'd love to try a pair of skates on that had the blades towards the outside a bit more.

You could have your holders remounted, that's not something that's that difficult to do.

Hey guys, here's the transcript from the MSH chat last night with Dave Cruikshank, one of the founders of MLX. A lot of good info here, really gives you a good perspective on what the skates are all about.

I think these are allen wrench though and easy to do yourself. I would like to experiment with this feature honestly. I snooped on the website you posted the link to and thought they were allen wrench thingies or something similar.

I could be wrong. i had my skate guy redo the rivet holes in one skate because my blade runner kept warping from a crookedly mounted Tuuk holder. He drilled a new rivet hole in fact to correct it. I wonder if this skate would be easier to fix such a problem because of the adjustable holders?

yo hockeyfan,

it has been a lonnnnng time since we talked on here and just to answer your question, I don't think that they are allen wrenches.

Also, I think its such a small company that you can just call them up and they would be able to help you out. Smaller companies have wayyy better customer service.

Did you manage to pick a pair of those skates up yet?

I saw Gonchar, Alfie, and Phillips wearing MLX skates yesterday afternoon at the Sensplex.

Looks like Gonchar is fitting in well with the boys, he even brought new skates with him.
