Stickhandling nightmare!!!

I know there is regularly a thread that pops up on this subject every few weeks or so, but I need help with my stickhandling.

I'm not a newbie by any means. I'm in my late 20s, I've been playing hockey since I was a kid, and I play in two beer league teams all year round. I'm never the worst player on my team, but my stickhandling skills are almost non-existant. I'm usually one the fastest skaters on the ice, so I figure if I could hang on to the puck for more than half a second, I would be a much better player.

I do a few practice drills, I rollerblade to practice my stickhandling once in a while, but I can't seem to be able to translate that when I'm in a game situation. I'm tired of seeing players with half my speed deeking 4 guys without breaking a sweat.

What else can I do to improve my stickhandling?

I've seen the Skinner Hockey DVDs online, but it's a lot of money. Has anyone purchased those? Are they worth the money? Anyone actually see results in their game?

Any comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated...
