They are testing some new skate blades in NHL lately.Has anybody
some info on the topic ???
Apparetnly they're tapered? Something like that...I heard something on another board, but I didn't quite make sense of the information.
On the other hand, guys will be using pink sticks for a few games coming up here soon.
No T-blades! The new runner is broader than the holder side . hope you know what I mean ...)... and it's not pink ...))
not even for Brashear ...
Ok, I have it. Robyn Regehr ( Calgary ) tested them. Not on the market yet, but has a smaller hollow and better gliding . The name is CT - skate blades or something like that ...
About the pink sticks...it's for Breast Cancer Awareness. I think it was Louisville TPS that was gonna make the sticks, so Nash will be using one. Idk about others, but I heard they'd use them in warm ups and auction them off.
Im pretty sure they were talking about it on Hockey Night in Canada a few weeks ago. The skates.
