And to the guy asking the question: stick length is really important too. With a short stick you will lean over more and get more force behind the shot. However, if you are like me and use a very short stick the extra velocity in your shot is pointless as the puck is very hard to keep down
Just for information sake:

shorter stick = stiffer stick.

Nike Bauer just started marking their sticks with adjusted flex markings. Cutting down a 87 flex one inch makes the stick a 97 flex.
