Problem was though that I couldn't stickhandle with it at all, so I ended up using a 'Sakic'. My shot was still good, and my stickhandling improved, but not well enough. Now I use a 'Datsuk' which is excellent for stickhandling but my shot power has gone down a notch. Still searching for the elusive 'perfect' curve!
That's true, I use a Forsberg (which is what a Modano was). I've used Sakic and Modano on and off and let me tell you it's hard to get used to the Forsberg after using Sakic for a while, you no longer have to keep your shots down but they're for sure more powerful, although with the Sakic you do get better handling (bc it's a big curve) and a mean wrister.
