04:06 pm - Air Brush Custom Mask Contest
Hey all, maybe if I make an actual post it will prompt some activity here? I played my first game for the Senior Lady Monarchs (www.srladymonarchs.com) and posted an 11-0 shutout. Granted I only saw 6 shots, but it was fun and a good first game to get the butterflies out.

In other great news goalie related...I entered a contest to win a custom painted Sportmask T3...and yes I won! Here's the link to my entry, and you can see that they're running another contest. Enter! You too can win your own dream mask!


I must say the Boston Bruins goaltending has been pretty weak so far this season...Hannu just seems to be dropping into a butterfly for every shot/fake and then ending up on his butt. *sigh* I sort of wish we still had Raycroft.

Greetings all! I'm just getting back to playing after taking a few years off. In the fall I'll be joining the Lady Monarchs of Manchester (NH). I just got a new set of Bauer Int. Supreme pads.

Also very glad to see the moves the Bruins made and I'm actually looking forward to the NHL season too.

01:09 am - Hey everyone
My name is Mike, and I am an 18 year old phenom goalie. Just kidding. I played in high school and I guess I was pretty good (team MVP, all conference nominee), and next year I will be trying out for the University of Michigan-Flint's club team. I am a hybrid goalie, and I model my style primarily after Curtis Joseph.

Pads: Bauer Supreme Senior 33"
Glove: Vaughn Legacy T 2200
Blocker: Vaughn Legacy 2700
Helmet: Itech (navy blue, not sure what model off hand)
Stick: Sher-wood 5030 SC Lalime Curve
Skates: CCM Tacs 452
Chest Protector: Old school Eddy (P.O.S.)
Pants: CCM Supra

My favorite goalies are probably Curtis Joseph, Marty Turco, Roberto Luongo, Patrick Lalime and Manny Legace.

I was at a tourney in AZ over Memorial Day weekend, and I got to talking to another goalie about Patrick Roy (who happens to be my favorite goalie). My buddy has met Roy and hates him. He says that Roy is an arrogant asshole. I looked him square in the eye and said, "Yup... You're right, but he also has the right in that he backs up everything he says. Ever see the interview with him after Jeremy Roenik laid in to him for being an arrogant ass?" he replied nope... And i said, "He said, 'I can't hear anything Jeremy Roenik says because I have two Stanley Cup rings plugging up my ears...'" He died laughing and finally understood why I like Roy so much.

He changed the way the game was played, and his attitude and arrogance were used as a tool to get in the heads of his opponents. I miss seeing the game on TV and I miss watching him play...

01:03 pm - as i was sitting and watching my sister's hockey game...
I thought "gee, wouldnt' it be a good idea to have an lj community for goalies? If not i'll make one, i'd name it between the pipes..."

hehe, but someone beat me to it XD

So, hi, i just joined ^_^ I'm Kara, a 21 year old goalie, well, currently teamless goalie. I started playing my soph year of highschool, and helped create a girls team at my school, I then graduated and currently attend UVM, where I played on their women's program for one year before quitting (third string walk on goalie = absolutely no game time. add having any friends on the team either quitting or graduating next year, and it was not worth my time to be there >_<). So since then i've been playing whenever anyone needed a goalie, and in a few local leagues.

fav goalie: Timmy Thomas, formerly of UVM (played w/ Eric Perrin and Martin St.Louis), currently of the Providence Bruins

Why is it all the hot goalie gear companies are making their pads all blocky? I can see how it covers more space, but it just seem to be to inhibiting. I'm looking for a pad that isn't so wide around the toe, to make skating behind and around the net a bit easier.

So far the only pad I can find that fits my liking is the Itech 8.8 X-Factors. They remind me alot of the old Heaton Pro 90 Z's which in my opinion, are the greatest pads ever made.

Anyone else share this pet peeve?

sharpen it! - xposted in goalies

Any goalies here ever get their skates sharpened off edge? getting the inside edge alot sharper than the outside? I'm thinking of trying this for better lateral movement, especially while being down.

Any experiences?
