Was the stick sale worth while?

I debated long and hard about going, but decided not to. Was it the right choice? Anyone here go?

From what I heard it opened early & everything was picked over if you got there at the scheduled opening.

Here's a couple threads from folks who went...

Depends what your angle is. If you were looking for some fairly new sticks to play with, then yeah it was pretty good. If you're into collecting memorabilia... eh so-so. If you would have shown up at 3 PM it wouldn't have been worth it, but I got there before 1:00 and they still had a decent selection.

After reading those threads I am glad that I didn't go. $75 minimum, with no real stars... blah.

i got there at 2:45 and was thoroughly disappointed at the fact that it started so early. i wasn't looking to get a crosby, malkin, staal, or even moore stick...just wanted something right handed at a decent price. obviously that didn't happen.

Since they opened it up WAY too early, the stick sale was really a waste of time (my brother and I were there at least 5 till 3, and the selection was pretty well cleared out by that point).

I thought the biggest laugher was the fact that they were selling Welch's wood sticks at $75 a piece...at least twice what they were worth.

At least we ran into a guy on the T that picked up a Vector for his kid, so I'm glad it went well for somebody :D

Reminds me of a story...A couple weeks ago me & my boy rode the Metro down to DC to see the Caps play. On the train ride back there was a little girl sitting near us holding Kolzig's stick from the game, still wet from the melting ice. He handed it to her on his way off the ice.
