Malkin uses one of the Easton Stealths (RS II, I think).

Sid used the 11K last season, and I think he's using it again this year.

The 11k. That's what I was referring to (all Reebok's skates look the same to me).

And I thought I saw a pic of Cooke at practice using the new CCM RBZ.

Very small, but you can see "RBZ" in the red on Cooke's stick.

Right, but that was last year. He apparently switched to CCM.

Apologies, I didn't realize that was a recent picture.

Also i have heard that some player use older model sticks because they like the feel of them and the companies re-paint them to look like the newer models.

don't just assume a guy has switched just because he's using it in camp. lots of guys are trying out new things because the company reps are hitting them hard since they have such a short time to do get their attention before the season starts.
another thing not to assume is what model of stick a player is using. like the above poster says, several companies (Easton included) will actually paint their sticks up as different models in order to make it look like a player is using the latest and greatest even if a player is using an older model stick. the only way to be 100% sure is to look inside the end.

I believe Sid is using the 20K skates and stick now. I know he had the 20K skates on last season.

Dupuis is all Bauer (helmet, gloves, skates, sticks)

Switched over from Easton after the 2010-11 season.

Malkin wears Bauer Vapor skates. Don't know the exact model number.

Neal uses (or used last year) an Easton S19 SE painted white to look like a Mako (think the stick Letang uses, now picture that painted white). Saw a picture of him at practice with what looked like an actual Mako, so...

Last year's stick:

I've lost track of Letang's sticks. He went from an SE16 to an S17 (both sitting in my living room, signed), to a Bauer something, back to an S19, and then to a Stealth RS (also have a team-issued stick in living room)

I think he's still using the S19 (or was in the scrimmage)
