3. To each his own about curves my friend... Makes passing better for me (just like the TKACHUK pattern circa 2000/01) and you can go top shelf on backhands very nicely (see video from Don Cherry's Rock'em Sock'em w/GILMOUR on a breakaway vs Pittsburgh)
I love backhand shelf goals, its one of my specialties (or so i think ), I practiced with a flat when i was a kid.. i just got used to doing it on a bigger curve eventually and i can shoot as well as i did before, probably aim a little better with a curved one. I stickhandle a lot with the heel so I have a flat heel about 1/3 of the way up, then put a wicked curve on top of that and I'm good to go.

I've heated up some composite blades and tried to alter them with heat before, it was a terrible idea, the blade broke clean in half with one toe snapper.
