The stick is probably a tapered shaft though and this would not be a good idea to do that. It would change the whole kickpoint in the shaft as well and be more like a standard shaft at the bottom with a skinny handle end.

I know I would rather just find a way to use a tapered replacement blade like the OP wants to and try to make the thing work as close as possible to when it was not broken.

I'm glad I use a two piece setup for this reason, costs less when you need to replace a blade and the performance is just about the same as a one piece .... more or less.

Some NHL guys today are using 2 piece setups so it isn't cheaping out sacrificing anything. My opinion on the matter anyway as it works for me. then agin I have never purchased a one piece so if I did someday i might freak out and love them more.

Who knows.

Good luck to the OP in getting this to work for him at least.
