as you can see the gaborik is most similar to the smyth/kovalchuck and the draper is similar to the sakic
That is of course when you overlook the fact that the Smyth is a toe curve...not to mention being a longer blade.

Trust me, I own a Smyth, it's a toe curve and it's much different than the mid curves I own (Thornton, Draper & Rafalski) especially when you take it out on the ice.

Only real difference between the Sakic and the Gaborik is the face angle. The Gabby's a bit deeper, but nothing earth shattering.
