The biggest thing is keeping the blade face closed when you want it to act like a closed blade. Otherwise, over the net you will go.

Edit: One-times have also become much easier to have a solid connection with.
for the sake of backhands, I prefer having a flatter blade with a heel or mid curve

but it is without a doubt that many pro's like using massive toe curves... doesn't hurt spezza's or ovechkins's game

I also think some d'men use an open face to get the puck up to the glass quickly
