After four NHL players tested the new heated blade technology the NHLPA gave a big thumbs down for the approval of them.  Toronto’s Mark Bell, Chicago’s Martin Lapointe, Detroit’s Kris Draper, Edmonton’s Marty Reasoner and Calgary’s Matthew Lombardi all used them and Reasoner was the only person who thought they performed well. 

Wayne Gretzky became a part-owner in the company and has stated that this product would revolutionize the game of hockey.

Therma Blade is a battery operated skate blade that heats up when you go on the ice and supposedly allows you to skate faster and accelerate quicker.  These claims appear to be false.
