These pockets in the tape generate the maxiumum amount of centrifugal force and the more the puck spins, the more stable the puck will be in flight and your shot will be far more accurate.

This has been very basic hockey knowledge for decades, come on man...
Nice try but no dice.....doesn't matter which way you tape a stick
