The real difference between MLX Skates and conventional ones is the customizability you can get (see more about that here). I don't want to overstate things, but I'm pretty sure it'll be enough to earn me a spot on the Ottawa Senators blue line. We'll see.
I'm waiting on the skates right now, but after giving them a test-run I'll post a review of whether or not I notice any difference in my game with them compared with my conventional skates.
