Here's the good/bad news: it's logical you can't catch rockets with a softer flex, at least not the way you did with a stiffer stick. You can't just put your blade in the way, and stop the puck, most times than not the puck's energy will flex the stick back and will slip under the blade.
Why is it good? You have to learn to catch passes softly. It is a very useful, though underrated skill.
