Hyping the Goalie Pads

From Dave Stubbs in The Gazette, it seems that Carey Price has some sharp new goalie gear…

And if you think he’s excited, wait until the minor-, garage-league and semi-pro goalies of the world get wind of it.

On goalie-populated Internet forums and bulletin boards, where all things netminding are rumoured, discussed and debated, Price’s new gear isn’t likely to cause a ripple of interest, but a tsunami.

The graphic scheme is expected to be available at retail stores sometime this summer, at roughly $1,700 for the pads and $500 and $325, respectively, for the trapper and blocker.

The interest among goalies in what’s worn by the top pros, says Achenbach, “is goofy, crazy ... Star Wars hype times 10.”
