I think the Oielrs should not allow the majority of their players to use the 1 piece sticks. It is a proven fact that they are meant for elite puckhandling players due to the way the puck jumps off the stick even accepting passes. Watch some of the banger players, every pass bounces off their stick or at least goes out of control leading to turnovers. These sticks only benefit players that have the hands to use them effectively. To me that limits the Oilers list to Hemsky, Dvorak, and York. Geez, Oates doesn't even use them and he is notorious for being one of the best players with the puck, how on earth can some of these plugs continue using them. Be like Moreau - use a Synergy shaft with a wooden blade. Or just a wooden stick like Oates. IMO these 2 have been plaing the best lately and it seems as though stick choice may have a minor influence on that.
