Overlap doesn't really matter. The ideal situation is one buts right up to the other with no overlap and no gap, but that just doesn't happen with people's arms at different lengths and pads from various companies and model years. Don't worry about it as long as it's comfortable.

As for Blades, there are a lot of mid moderates out there. In easton, Sakic is very close, but a little more open. Iginla is similar spec but shorter. Heatley is a very close match but has a funky toe (which I like the concept of, but they only sell it in OPS, no blades) , not sure about lie.
