Where would you guys say is the best place to buy new skates around here? Both in terms of price, selection, and knowledgability of the sales staff? It's time to retire my used pair of Bauer 3000s, and I'm eyeing some top end skates, including Grafs.
I don't want to be one of those shmucks who goes to a store to try on the product, then buys it on the internet. (Not to mention I want to get the heat-molding and sharpening.) So I want to find somewhere that is pretty much guaranteed to be a good deal.
Any thoughts? HockeyMonkey? HockeyGiant? Toyota Sports Center's Pro Shop?
