Whatever suits your game and shooting tendencies.

The Vanek is a pretty tame curve, would be good for keeping slapshots lower to the ground to force rebounds. When I used to use the PM9 in Bauer(basically the same as the Vanek) I would get lower, harder shots from outside. I have since switched to the P91 since I am a forward so I can pick corners easier.

I thought Fedorov was the Warrior PM9 clone.

Anyways, it's all personal preference. Although most usually use the more "normal" curves such as the PM9, but some use a drury as well.

Haven't personally used Warroir in years, so I could be wrong, I was just going off of the players bench blade compare tool on their site.

I use a Harrow #7 when playing defense which is basically a Warrior Jovanovski (old name) /Lidstrom (new name) clone.

The blade is nice and big giving you a little bit more area to block shots, the square toe makes it easy to dig the pucks out of corners. The really open face helps me get shots up easily, so much so, that I actually have to focus on keeping them low, but overall I really like the pattern.

New name is actually Getzlaf.

The Warrior "Jovanovski" is now the Warrior "Lidstrom." (supposedly)

The Easton "Lidstrom" is now the Easton "Getzlaf."

I think Skraut was referring to the Warrior naming convention. In any event, they're all the same curve (more or less :naughty:)

I have a Vanek and it would be decent, but the toe is a bit open and its rounded.

I have a Draper, which would not work for D.

I had a teammate who led the league in goals as a defenseman who used a draper. It's all about shooting style. He had a BOMB slapper with it and it only went knee high at the net.

According to the board my post was at 1:05PM, so you know I'm just absolutely wasted at that time :P

Yeah I guess I got thrown off by all the Lidstrom talk.
