absolutely no doubt, every level of play has suffered since they arrived. i think its partially to blame for the nhl goal scoring slump. guys cant control loose pucks around the net anymore. noboady makes perfect passes in the scrambles, and guys arent burying them like they used to. i use a composite blade from time to time because im 6'4" 215 and i blow through wood too quick. i still bought another sherwood 7000 this week. i still love it, and im a better player with it.
