biggest cure?

I'm pretty sure when someone figures out how to cure AIDS or Cancer, that will be it...

One time I was aimlessly wandering through Value Village and looking at their crappy sports stuff and I found an easton blade with the biggest curve I have ever seen. The pattern was called "Euro" and it was made by Easton. I used it and holy **** it was like using a hook out there. Can't describe the curve and it broke at the end of last year but I think the Euro name says it all.

I saw some guys custom curve at a hockey shop near me. No idea how he made it. But it was nuts. It was most definitely illegal.

My friend has a stick with a custom curve which is literally a hook. I can cradle a ball in that thing if I wanted to.

I know they changed the rule in the NHL, can you now use any hook or is there still a limit? Curious to know USA hockey rules as well.

Biggest cure ive ever seen was Polio.

Biggest curve was a Gaborik Easton stick.

Biggest cure?


Biggest curve?
I didn't know the kid, but he had a stick that he said he shaped himself that almost looked like a V. It was ridiculous and most definitely illegal. One team tried to call him on it, but the ref laughed and said "You think I care about his stick? This isn't the NHL."

Biggest curve has to be a guy at my pickup league. There aren't any refs, so he goes right ahead and uses this dirty curve (it's almost an L-shape).

Nobody really says anything to him either because he's a hot-head.

Coffey or Gaborik.

Though no stock curve can beat a blow torch.

This thread is giving me a flashback to gym class with the teacher yelling at students for over bending those cheap plastic floor hockey sticks to ridiculous angles.

Biggest curve I have ever seen was the Christian "Big Curve" aka "Manitoba Special." Billy Christian told me that the beer-leaguers in Manitoba liked big curves.

I wish I still have a picture of that thing. It smoked the Easton Euro. You could put the blade on the ground and roll a quarter under the blade and it wouldn't come close to touching it.

Or perhaps you are confusing a vaccine for a cure.

Okay, I think that's enough with the vaccine and cure thing. It was an honest mistake, can we please cut it out?
