It's because the Sakic is open-faced. It's more like a wedge. It's like you went golfing and switched from a 3 iron to a 9. You're probably chipping the puck when you used to be putting all wood on it. The curve could have something to do with it, too. Personally I don't like any loft on my blades, my wristers always fly too high.
