Forsberg (mid-heel, 9mm moderate curve, neutral loft, medium length, rounded toe)

Easton's Forsberg used to be Modano. Bauer PM9 blade currently marketed under Malkin name also used to be Modano (PM9 some say stands for Player Modano #9)

The nicest Easton Pattern for me are usually the Sakic curves.

None. Too many aspects to consider.

I'm still pissed Easton got rid of the Gaborik curve and now he's on their ad for the S17. Doesn't make any sense.

Relax, it's vastly different. The old one replicated by Mission was almost strait blade. The new now has a huge 15mm (5/8") mid-toe curve. Lie has also changed.

The question is, is the heatley curve similar to the malkin/st. louis pm9 curve

Heatley is not similar, but close since the most important thing - lie - is the same at 5. It has large curve compared to Forsberg or identical Malkin. Heatley also shorter, which makes stickhandling easier, but impedes somewhat puck rotation on shots.
