Specific Blade Pattern Advice (Ice)

I have been using a wood (fiberglass reinforced) Montreal for years. I want to convert to graphite but dont like the fact I cant monkey with the curve (fire and door jam technique). I like a mid moderate curve with closed rounded toe. Any advise?

P88 Kane curve from Bauer (used to be P88 Lindros)

CCM Thornton will work too.

Dono if I'd call that moderate though. Neither is Thornton, I think it's 3/4. It's actually a hard curve to find if you want a closed toe. You might need to adjust to PM9 or Forsberg if you can deal with mid-heel.

True. It's not as moderate as the PM9. Bit more closed as well.

Can't stand it though personally lol.

What about the Warrior Kolvalchuk, does that fit my description?

Check out the various internet websites that offer blade charts. Most companies have their own versions of "NHL players" curves and vary from company to company a little bit.

But you seem to want a Heatley (Easton), Recchi (CCM), Iginla, Lindros(P88) type curve.

Take a peek here and look at some. http://www.hockeymonkey.com/blade-pattern-chart.html

Yeah and the Fedorov/Savard might work as well. The face is just slightly open and it's more of a mid/heel.

Kovalchuk would probably be closest, but here's some tools:
