The sweet stick is a good tool of last resort. I rarely use it but when I have it's been a life saver. 1 - 2 gentle swipes. Just enough to roll the edge to restore some bite. The last time I needed I played a period and half with no bite on my right foot inside edge. Damn near crushed our goalie when I couldn't stop. Wiped out a few times trying to turn. A few swipes between periods and I was able to finish the game without any issues.
A buddy on my county league team gets his skates sharpened maybe twice a season and goes to town with the sweet stick before every game. And then he wonders why he can't skate worth a damn.
