why do small dick dads find this insult "go back to town hockey" so satisfying. Sad lives
It’s true though. Unless your kid is a mite or a tiny squirt, he/she shouldn’t be skating on 1/2 inch. You’re doing the kid more harm then good. It’s like keeping training wheels on a bicycle and asking your kid to go compete in a bike race.
You could not be more wrong here. Bergeron is well over 1" for his sharpening. In fact, the person on the Bruins with the deepest hollow is Marchand at 5/8". At least do your research before you start to type things.
Yeah, he has a reason to lie about his hollow? Now your connected to the sharpener of the Bs and come on here to brag lol. 1/2 or 5/8ths is most common and that was the discussion. There is a reason for that if you ever skated. 1"s and 3/8ths etc are outliers. Keep your Fed stud on 1" as he does figure 8's and can't cut back. But, you can say he has the same edges as Bergeron to your fellow tool bag Dads. No super dad here, just one who has a clue.

My kid plays on a very solid to high end 07 team. I’d say barely any of the kids on his team skate on a 1/2”. Most are 3/4” or 3/8 , 1/2’s are for the kids who bring their skates to pure hockey for a sharpening.
I’m sure your duster is still skating stock steel as well.
