Well I figure its time to give a serious reply to this thread.
Contact with concrete/pavement really wares the blade especially if your doing snap/slap shots. If you have to stick handle ( for practice) on such a surface keep your stick taped, and better yet find a shooting pad. If you want to play road hockey get a stick specifically for that.
Dont curve your blade this really weakens it.
On ice there are things like excessive stick work, such as slashing, trying to remove the stick from a guys hands as a stick lift, slamming your stick on the boards/ice out of frustration.
Don't flex it, don't let other people flex it. I have seen countless sticks broken in the locker room from people showing off how there new stick can really flex, or letting other teammates flex it. Dont let people use your stick who you know are hard on there own sticks.
