If they actually just sanded down a small area of the shaft really close to the heel/blade, I've never heard of anyone doing that. The only reason I can think of to sand down the shaft near the blade would be to lower the kick point, though it would also likely really reduce the stick's durability (not as important for pros who can use a new stick every game, though).
I don't clearly remember if the blade was sanded. I do however remember that the bottom half foot or so of the shaft was sanded.
