Can't afford to play ice down here. Rink time is at $460 an hour right now. An additional $50 if you want the Zam to resurface beforehand. $18 Stick and Pucks don't seem worth the hour I get to skate and the hour an 20 minute drive. I can almost play paintball for that much.

hitmen uni's were ****ing sickkk

nahhhh flop is sick. I dont personally rock the flop but it wont make you look stupid like a tinted visor/gay tape color.
Have to start with this: I stopped reading after this post.

I went to school with Jorgy. He is a year behind me, i'm graduated, but I played with him a few years ago. I was planning on coming out to some of the summer skates this year in West Meadows, but since i've changed my sites to enlistment I can't make 'em

Legitimate question though...i'm confident, especially based off the goalies for the Rampage, that I could play in the GLJHL but I never went to any tryouts or anything at that level during HS...just went to one Junior A open-camp last summer which was a huge mistake...just a fundraiser for their program and I'm not at Junior A Tier 1 level yet...but how are the tenders in the GLJHL? I played D at some rat ice a few weeks ago and one of the rampages goalies showed up, he was terrible, absolutely terrible.

Other than that, working on getting the money for some new pads after I get out of training, and finally getting my helmet painted. Going with Army Black and Gold. I'll get pics up once I actually get the pads (so we're looking at about 12 months from now) since I hate posting those screen shots of the customizers. Going either with another pair of Simmons (any tenders can talk all the **** they want, but you have to admit it's fine quality at half the cost of any other company) or some Bauer supremes...

Probably going to hit up Total Hockey's goalie demo on the 22nd.

Do you ever bottom out on the cowling? I get pretty damn low and it would bug the **** out of me if I caught the cowling on the ice and lost my edge because of it. I've only ever used Bauer skates. I really need a new pair, but I don't have the money and I won't be skating for about a year

Skating once, maybe twice a week during school was hard enough, hopefully i'm busy enough in training to forget about the lack of skating

On my grafs my skate guy actually shaved down the side.I replaced the blade about a year ago, it will eventually get worn down (the blade) but hey i was playing 7 days a week. Also why not go tryout. I made it as a walk on to a junior team at 17. You can do anything you set ur mind to.

Jesus Christ, that's expensive. It's like $5 here and goalies play for free.

Believe me, I want to. My summer just opened up today so I plan on going to some Junior skates in the area at least, but i'm still on track for enlistment that directly conflicts with the season

My plan is to come back, finally in the best shape of my life, skate every day between when I get back from training and before school starts, and just hound the coach until he lets me get on the ice in front of someone who can actually make a decision for the team (NCAA). It's Michigan Tech, and if you got offers from MSU, then you know MTU isn't much to write home about, lol.

Thanks though, hockey's been my life, as i'm sure it was yours, and i'm not ready to give it up.

haha thats sick, Tenders in the GL were hit and miss. Our 3 goalies were all ****ing sick. The Rampage had one reall good goalie and the other ones were bad. Some teams had some good goalies, some teams had bad goalies (starting goalie for the Inferno was our first cut)

Yeah it seemed like it haha. So is the GL though. Its really top heavy. Theres 3 teams that could compete at nattys (us/Wisconson Rampage/Motor City Cheifs), then all the other teams are just trash. We had I think 4 loses all year and one was a forfeit cause our bus broke down and we diddnt make it there for the game.

I'd say play a league for a bit first, walk on games generally have a pretty wide range of skill. There will probably be some players on your level, but there's often a bunch of jackasses who come to these games and play against people worse than them, I guess it makes them feel good about themselves.
87?
