After breaking my go-to stick, I switched back to the P08 curve I had. It was uncut and I had been using a longer stick so I added about an 1.5" to it. I have never been able to stickhandle as well as I did today with it at pickup. I came from a sakic clone which I worked to improve my dangles and one v. one moves. Today I was splitting D left and right and being able to go around and through D as I pleased. Only thing was getting re-calibrated shooting wise and I have to find that sweet spot on the backhand again.

It was nice to see improvements made based on working on things and trusting abilities enough to try new moves to open up space or get by defenders and having it work consistently. Always work to improve the game in some way because sometimes you'll surprise yourself.
