Bauer XR8/XR4 leg pad

Hockey season starts this thursday.  I just got picked up by a league to skate every thrursday from now until the end of march.  I’m super excited so i have started shopping for new lag pads since mine are now out of spec.  What I am mainly looking for is butterfly design maybe even hybrid and a fully adjustable knee so I can run a little big taller pad than what I should run.  I believe my True ATK calls for a 34″ pad.  I currently run a 35+1 but i would like to run a 36+1 or 37 and just bring the landing gear down to where i need it.  This will allow me to be a little more lazy in my butterfly and still close the five hole.

Here are some pads i’m looking at:
