*edit - I wasn't exactly clear on this, but I am not really a beginner as far as shooting goes. I do have a pretty good wrist shot now. My main problem is keeping a pass on my stick when someone passes to me. Obviously that is not because of the stick.
If you are having trouble receiving passes then your correct that has little to do with the blade. Do you tape your blade? If so try adding wax, that should help a little. Otherwise its really just making sure you receive it properly, if you catch the pass too high on your blade or too low its just going to slide off, if its a tough pass in your skates spread your legs out and drop your lower hand to receive it. It just comes with practice.
