Shooting is incredibly complex and takes a great deal of skill and practice. But your average beginner who's 5'9 and 150 pounds will be unable to flex a wood stick cut down to length...guaranteed. Might have an okay slapper but leaving power on the table.
Like I said, it requires a lot of practice and some instruction, so until you're really learning to shoot, the composite has no benefit. Hell, I'd say that over half the guys on my team don't flex their stick and have proper technique and they've been playing for years.
be as scientific as you're making it out to be- but it doesn't need to be. Just aim and shoot as hard as you can. I guarantee that's what Ovechking would tell you- minus the aiming part.
