I always taped the handle because of tradition... my dad did it, my brother did it, all my teammates did it, so I did it. My idea was always that the tape absorbed sweat from the glove, so the top hand wasn't slipping around.

These days I use grip tape (this stuff). I love this stuff, only issue I've had is that every few tape jobs, this stuff wanders down the shaft. To fix that, when using the grip tape I leave a half-inch gap at the top of the stick. Then I wrap regular hockey tape around and around the top to form a knob and hold the grip tape in place.
