One of my biggest frustrations with playing on any floor is the friction and lack of movement. The inline leagues would be foolish to ban these. All they're doing is shrinking the pool of goaltenders. It's already tough to find a good goalie who is willing to play inline. An innovation like the rollerfly will bring more skilled ice goalies to the inline floor.

I used to mock inline as a game for skinny, half emo, VW driving queers.
But I fell in love with it once I started taking shots out there. It's just such a fast, fun game, and a great addition to my ice hockey.

^Ironically I used to love roller and once I started playing ice, felt the roller game was slow and a bit boring. A lot more fun reading and predicting plays as a goalie on ice

I'll still enjoy roller, just never in net

Yea when you play goalie in roller hockey you really have to think about positioning yourself a step ahead before the play

goalie is def more exciting in roller as it is wide open and you face more shots.. as a player ice is def more fast paced...

You bet!
On the ice I can use my athleticism to get that big "out of position" save. On the floor, not so easy. I found the same with ball hockey too, that if you're out of position, you're screwed.

No offside, along with the 4 on 4 and no icing makes for an exciting game with lots of opportunity for breakaways and odd man rushes.

I should get out there and try it as a player one of these days.

i started playing roller and loved the game, then after half a season of ice this winter i don't really want to go back to playing roller anymore. for one i can't stop which is the biggest issue i have after playing ice. other than that the game is fun because of how fast it can be.

like i said earlier, as a player, after playing ice, roller is very slow paced.... almost standstill.. I play goal in roller and agree it is very fun.

I love seeing a guy carry the puck and stop, only to have the guy chasing him skate right past.

Stopping on inline isn' that tough. I learned to do it because of the whole t-push thing. I can move laterally on my skates, but have to stop at the post or else the net will be wide open.

Soft wheels are the key. I run Labeda grippers on my inline skates, and they're awesome.

For some reason this got me thinking. I wonder if I've ever played with any of you guys out there and not realized it. I mean, it's not like my jersey says "hypa" or yours says "BlueG2". It would be so much more convenient if they did though.

hockeymonkey would be the cheapest, ship to point roberts. right now they are clearing the old easton line and you can get top of the line equip for a good price. its way more worth it than buying from here. you pay the price of mid-level equip here and get top of the line stuff off hockeymonkey. if youre looking for in town, sport mart is having a store closing sale, 30% off everything

which league are you joining?

Girdle + shell combos aren't as common in retail. Buy the same size shell as your girdle though. Most local shops I've seen only carry pant shells, I don't think I've seen girdle shells.
