Darzins hands were better for sure and I'm not even talking about that Schremp fella.

Then you dont even how to shoot it
Im amazed actually that so many hockey players through time in Canada that also played lacrosse as sommerpractice havent started to do this things much earlier.
It's allowed, many guys have done that to some extent including above mentioned Schremp. And players didn't start to do this whole lot earlier because composite sticks and curved blades are relatively new inventions. Well maybe not curved sticks but sticks with such a big curve. You couldn't do this with Gretzky's or Lemieux 's stick no matter how good your hands are.
