The Sakic is more open but not quite to the Frolov level and the Modano is listed as closed. I used an Easton Yzerman forever but when that went away I have kind of been switching around.
My question is what exactly does the ridiculously open face do? I have a good wrist shot with any of my sticks and have a fine slap shot with all of them but a better snap. My backhand is also fine with them. Just curious about how open that blade is
It makes it easier to saucer passes, and go top shelf and way over the net by accident
. The trick is to turn your wrists over more to keep the follow through down and you won't shoot too high.
