    Default getting back into it.

    i grew up playing goal, but havent played in quite some time. I'm making the return to ice, as a skater this time. Probably gonna start out in a no-contact adult league with my brother and some buddies. i just bought some vapor XIX's off of ebay. does anybody have any advice what type of equipment i should start buying. Obviously i would love to have all top of the line stuff, but i am graduating college soon so i = poor. And if i'm just playing non-check i probably wont need crazy protective stuff. thanks for any info.

    also, any good shop recommendations in the ie/oc would be great. Websites would be cool too, i've browsed hockeygiant, hockeymonkey, etc... thanks again.

    I played out for a couple of seasons and I eBay'd all the gear I got, minus the skates. Well, I got my stick from Play it Again on a trip out to SoCal (Kansas City is void of them). First get back on skates and get your ice legs back. However, if you would like, I can put my gear on e-bay (on the cheap) for you and we can figure out prices before I post them "buy it now" so that we can ensure you get them. Let me know. I've got a helmet that I got new (off of ebay) with a full cage that I only used for one season (I can send it with a brand new half shield too). Everything else if basically used, but I haven't worn it for 2 years now as I have been back in net. Let me know.

    Well, I didn't follow my own advice and just jumped back into it. It took me the better part of a 3 month season. Then I said screw it and went back to net.

    I think this is the part where I acknowledge that my 36th birthday is around the corner, my knees are truly shot and my 'hockey career' may be over.
