Are wood sticks going to be extinct?

I'm a die-hard woodie man, but it seems it's getting harder to get my hands on good wood sticks.

When I hit the pro shops, they're constantly pushing their huge selection of composites, whereas the viable choices for woodies are dwindling. Especially for someone like me who favors the "intermediates". Fewer brand names, curve choices, flexes, lengths, etc. Heck, some online hockey stores don't even carry woods anymore!

Are my beloved woodies going the way of the dinosaur?? I'm sure the hockey brand companies would be quite happy to drop them in favor of their "higher-end" composite products that likely carry a greater profit margin.
