One interesting comment:


Quote:
Colton Gillies, the youngest member of the Minnesota Wild, has had trouble all year trying to find a stick that works. In junior hockey, his team budget was considerably smaller, and the team provided only stiff sticks so that the players wouldn’t break them. But in the NHL, where the budgets and resources are substantially higher, young players need to spend a lot more time trying out a variety of sticks. Before practices, Gillies takes loads of shots as he simultaneously works on his puck skills and stick selection.
