Default Figured out the backhand with the PM9

I figured out why I was having trouble on the backhand with the pm9. Proper technique! Since it's almost a neutral face, there's no extra openness to help you cheat. You have to competely roll your wrists (I was really doing it half arsed), just the opposite of the wrist shot.

I'm not sure about the iginla because it is also similar to the (Bauer) lindros (havent had a good experience with that curve). I'm guessing gaborik would be close. Correct me if i am mistaken.

Gaborik is a bit more curve than a Thornton, and it will be very difficult to find on any recent models. Last sticks I saw that on were SL/ST/"05 Stealth.

The Iginla, Lindros, Thornton, Afinegenov, and Hossa are all in the same family.

You will find that the iginla has a bit less curve, and a shorter blade height-wise than the Thornton. Shouldn't be much of an adjustment though. Good Luck!

Nothing. They are clones.

The '08 Nash is the version that differs from the Sakic, it's a little more open if I remember correctly.

Now every shot will be up over the net! I've come to the conclusion that the openness of a face is what determines stickhandling difficulty and based on that factor, a curve can help or hurt. This just sounds like it will hurt more.

is it true that the more open the blade is the harder it makes it to stickhandle? also....does anyone think that with a drury pattern that everything goes extremely high?

I don't find that the blade being open effects my stickhandling at all. However, the more open blades tend to be larger curves, so that may be effecting your ability to handle the puck. As for the Drury curve, yes....everything tend to go high. The Drury twists open from the middle of the blade as opposed to the toe to most shots will tend to curl along the blade and across the open toe portion. When I use the Drury/Frolov I have to over emphasize my shooting motion in order to keep the shots low.
