    I have purchased on Ebay a lot of my gear, but they have all been local purchases where I can go and pickup whenever I want it.

    But goal skates seem to be much cheaper in the States, I have shipped many items over the border before (and saved a boat load of money doing so!!), so I know the risks involved.

    Does anyone know some decent online hockey stores that will ship to Canada and have good prices? Or should I just stick to the local guys.

    hockeygiant.com hockeymonkey.com There's a sticky thread in this forum, which is where I'd look.

    greatskate is a local store for me. Unless you find an outdated model on sale, they are one of the hioghest priced stores around. What ever you do, if you purchase skates do not ask them to put a grind on them. They do horrible grinds.
