I have the answer:

Find out the nearest team that is having an equipment sale and get 4 s17s, or one95s, or dolos or vapor xxxxs in new condition for $200.

Or you could find someone who can go to one and have them ship it to you.

What's the point in painting a stick? If it actually had a purpose, I would try it.

I think some pros paint the bottom portion of their sticks so it's easier to see in their peripheral vision. A lot of these OPS have flashy graphics that are distracting.

I can see why ryder does that though, maybe so that he knows where his hand should be on the stick for sticl handling? i dont really see any other reason to do that... you would think an NHL player would know where to crab a stick...

I suppose it's a request from the companies to at least have their name on the stick the players use, to prevent every player to just paint black their whole stick.

shouldnt you know where your stick is anyway? i know the concept of what i said seems silly but the stick would feel different based on how you painted it and he could just like having that opening there. but it also could could be for the companys name to still be there... either way its not a big issue

He probably didn't paint that area because that's where his lower hand goes and he didn't want his palm covered in paint.

I can understand painting your blade black and/or using black tape but I'm not quite sure I understand painting the whole stick.

Maybe he has an endorsement deal with Easton? I don't think so though because I have seen pictures of him from this year with unpainted sticks, painted sticks, different brands etc. I found one pic of him with a Warrior stick while he was wearing his face shield which he started with this season and another with an unpainted Easton stick with the face shield.

I don't know, he may just be one of those guys who doesn't care what he uses as long as the blade is good.

I do know that a manufacturer pays like 50,000 to the league to allow players to use their equipment. I found this out because Farrell sports came out with a stick and didn't pay so one thing they did was to make the whole stick black so you have a hard time to see the company logo.

Sounds crazy enough to be true but maybe it isn't. I claim to be NO expert in the matter.

I do remember Cam Neely painting over the logos on his gloves because he endorsed CCM. You see this often in music where you have a guitar player being endorsed by a guitar company so he has to tape over the logo of a favorite guitar he has had for years in order to use it live because photos of him getting out using the nonendorsed guitar would void his endorsement deal.

I am sure there are some crazy rules in play we never hear about with regards to equipment companies and the NHL.

I use an older Easton Synergy ST, Gaborik curve and it was painted burnt orange. It was hideous. Throw on primer and flat black and now it looks a lot better to me and that's all that matters. And no it doesn't turn your gloves black.

Yep primer then paint is the right way to paint anything that gets painted.

*cringes at burnt orange*

That pretty much sums things up for me, everything other then the OP's question and answers to said question.

As a goalie, when playing against teams that I didn't know, I would always remember players by their sticks.

It was alot easier than to look for their number or something else. It was even better when the teams best player had some super flashy stick. All I had to do was look for that and keep an eye on it. If the whole team painted all their sticks black than I would be at a disadvantage. But if the one guy is just painting his stick all black than it's easy for me to pick him out.

Or if you just want to eliminate a portion of the logo, just use sandpaper to take the paint off. And NO, this will not affect the integrity of the stick. You are just sanding off the paint that they applied at the factory in China.

I was thinking, another reasonable excuse to paint your stick is if you have a two piece that doesn't match and don't want to see the contrast in your peripherals or don't like the mismatching color scheme.

I've done that for years as I like a black blade, I used to paint wood blades black and now if a composite blade doesn't match my shaft color of black I paint it.

The reason people spay paint there sticks black is because they find it easier to look down at a black puck with a black shaft and blade the with a shiny stick and the glare from the building.
