Those were in deed the best, did you heat them up and curve the blade? I use to do it and the stick was awesome. Looked like Jagr's from back in the day
I did. I used to spend all the money I'd earn on sticks, and tinker around with stuff on them. My dad always wondered where his sandpaper would go. Though it's funny you mention doing so because it was in dek hockey where I became meticulous about my sticks, and customizing them. I never bought a stick off a rack all the years I played hockey and kept it the way it was.
Nothing made me shoot harder, but I thought it did, which is considered a battle won, I guess.

I thought I was the coolest when I bought the Mylec "aluminum" shaft. That thing was ****in steel...not aluminum. I pick it up today and compare it to my Ultra Lites and stuff...that thing is easily triple the weight.
I've been cleaning out my parents garage because my dad is moving out of the house, and I have every single stick I've ever owned. Even the broken ones. You want to talk about flashbacks and memories. 3 nights ago I seriously picked up every single one of them and stick handled a ball. Pretty awesome experience.
We really need a good prospect or two that we can groom, if one of the big three goalies is available in the 2nd round, do you think we should draft one of them? maybe Oscar Dansk? I really hope we do draft a goalie in the 2nd, 3rd or 4th round, what do you guys think?
