    Prices are better at Monkey and Giant. Overall shopping experience is best at Monkey.
    The retail space is pretty limited and in need of a re-design but I found everything I was looking for. The on-site stick collection was probably their strong point.

    According to the guy that helped me, their distributor is based out of LA so ordering things they don't have on-site via their website shouldn't take more than a day or two.

    I'd love to visit Hockey Monkey at some point. I just can't justify driving out to OC primarily to window shop.

    Sharpenings - TSC. I use my small sharpener in between games. I'll also let my friend at Hockey Monkey sharpen my skates but only if he's there.

    I buy my equipment from a small retailer in Vancouver named Cyclone Taylor. I'll try stuff out at the different retailers here then order from there since I know those guys & if they don't carry it, they can order for me.

    CycloneTaylor.com - ice hockey equipment, goalie equipment, ice hockey skates, hockey sticks, hockey store vancouver, vancouver hockey stores, vancouver ice hockey equipment, surrey hockey store, richmond hockey store, coquitlam hockey store, ice ska

    Sports Chalet and Sports Authority sell sticks that have plastic blades on them. When I alerted them that they could not be used on rinks, they said oh well, that is what we sell. F them in the A

    Even Big 5 does a better job than them. Even though they don't sell composites, at least Big 5 have some wooden ones.

    I go to Hockey Giant because it is close to my work & I can go get what I need during lunch. Soon the anaheim store is moving to the old Cal Spas building down the street, so it will be even bigger.

    I liked Lee's skate shop on Westminister Ave in Garden Grove back in the day. They had Northland Power Lite Sticks for $7 & they also had some complete uniforms from the movie slapshot on display.

    Yeah Big 5 can surprise me at times. They'll have some decent stuff on the cheap every once in a while. I bought my trusty old stick I've had forever. Good ole aluminum.

    I go there in a pinch for hockey tape, pucks, a wood stick etc.
