Forsberg maybe, less of a curve but still no loft to it.

Woaaaa. Forsberg is a pretty straight blade.

Easton's Gaborik was pretty close. TPS Afinogenov is close too.

Sakic is a pretty crazy curve but it's an open face. Iginla less open.

Easton Gaborik/Yzerman was close if you can find it (Easton discontinued it last year). The CCM Thornton and RBK Bergeron/Amonte are clones as well and probably your best bet. The Warrior Smyth is also similar. The Bauer Lindros is like a mild version of the Coffey, but is a mid curve/closed face like the Coffey.

The CCM Thornton is by far the closest.

The Warrior Smyth is close, but the curve is more towards the toe.

Recchi was close but they are hard to find now. I switched to Forsberg.

Easton Gaborik is the closest I've found... I still use my paul coffey stick(s) for fun... they're in my basement! God, I love that curve.

They're still making them! RM19 goes for $200. Top heavy, but you can customize the shaft pretty well through some dealers.

All of Sher-woods sticks have a Coffey curve as an option with the exception of the RM8, RM9 and 5000 woodie.

They still make them but they're illegal in many leagues, including mine!

It actually happened a few years ago here. In D-5 I think (there are 10 total divisions)

From what I heard this is how it went:

Captain: I want to check his stick.
Ref: What?!
Captain: His stick is illegal!
Ref: (looks at stick) It's legal. (To the captain) Put a guy in the box.

I just bought the Coffey RM-9 I think, it's red and blue. It's a little heavy but I got used to the Gaborik so I'm screwed at this point. I have 3 Gaboriks left, 1 is on it's last leg. I've tried the Smyth Warrior and the RBK Bergeron, Bergeron was closer for me. Anyway, the RM-9 was only $115, not bad. It has some nice flex to it but it leaves me wishing that Easton would not only advertise that Gaborik uses their sticks and start making the S17's with his curve. Strange marketing concept.

Tikk, I think Gabby is officially back with Easton now. That might put his pattern back into production. I recall reading something along that line, but not 100%.

Hopefully that's true, although I don't recall him "leaving." Normally they'd just re-assign the curve to a new name. Debating if I want to blow $35 on some Yzerman CNT replacement blades.

It just seems strange to me they would pimp Getzlaf and Gaborik as Easton users but not carry their curve. And it's not like Gaborik curves didn't sell because they are incredibly hard to find 2 sticks later.

Best stick ever made.

I still have 8 new ones to go, snagged them up at Costco when Sherwood announced they'd stop the wood sticks.

Yeah, I saw your previous thread on this =)

I got a Gaborik SL Grip still in good shape, only thing is that 100 flex is a little too beefy for me. The CCM Thornton is close enough for me since I'm usually a shaft/blade guy.

So is there a final verdict on which is the closest?

I use the Lindros Curve, the the Coffey was my first love and in my opinion the best curve ever. The Featherlite was an awesome wood stick.

The closest curve that I have used is the Gabroik compared to the Coffey. Bergeron is 2nd and Smyth is 3rd. But, now that the Coffey is availbale in a 1 piece composite at a reasonable price there is no need to switch curves.
