The Gionta looks like a P88, slightly lower lie, slightly more toe. Pretty neutral face, fairly flat rocker. Would be nice for people who like the Forsberg but want a little more toe curve.

Now if it were a Hossa, Kovalchuk, or Ovy pro, that'd be a different toe curves with higher lies.

I haven't used an Easton Sakic in forever, but my main stick all year was a P92, alternating between that and Warrior/TPS/Harrow Sakic clones. I liked the Bauer most because it was slightly more open than the rest (I mean SLIGHTLY) and lightest weight so my shot was better.

I had been tempted to try an Ovy pro clone to get a more open Sakic but man it's just too freaky looking in person. Maybe someday I can find the new Bauer P08 which is not quite as big/open.
