Never broken a hockey stick, but i have broken a few lacrosse sticks and heads. Lax sticks dont really break so much as bend horribly. To the point where holding it becomes uncomfortable and extremely awkward.

But congratulations man. Hopefully it is the first of many? Or are you suppose to hope that no more break? Hmm...

Nah, it's funny because for a while now, i've been wondering how other skaters (Jarick included) break their sticks. The worst thing that I've done to a stick at my level is deflect/block a point shot with a shaft and had a small chunk of fiberglass and composite chip out.

Last night, my RW sent a relatively hard pass up to me on the RD side. It was perfectly positioned... sliding flat... so I tried to release a one timer. Thing is... I managed to actually hit the puck, in the right spot, and the shot would have been a thing of beauty... Except the broken stick part... Stick didn't "shatter" into pieces, it just crunched and bent. Puck still made it halfway to the middle of the ice, but the ref heard the crunch of the stick and looked at me, had to go to the bench.

Long story short... I found out what it takes to actually break a stick, which I was curious about.

Edit; I also have two more of the same stick I broke. One is cut down 3 inches and I've been using that one at forward. Plus the new Mikken I picked up last week... Just now figuring out what I like in a stick...

It's always funny when a 200$ stick snaps like a twig.

i haven't upgraded to $200 sticks yet.

The one that broke last night was a Total Hockey red tag special. Regularly priced at $120, then went on clearance for $80, and then for one of their special events, it was a BOGO at $80. The new Mikken I just picked up is also a Red Tag special. Originally $200, got it for $80.

God I haven't played in a while so I don't remember paying this. I still use an original Synergy that I've got left over from being my main stick from High School hockey. Worst I ever did was have a kid tomahawk me and snap my old CCM vector. Tore that kid a new ******* next shift.

Hah, that's either awesome or terrible. Awesome if you didn't care about the stick (new stick!) and terrible if you loved it or are broke.

I've really only broken two sticks while shooting. Both snapped in the same spot, about two feet up from the blade. Both times I was really powering into the shot, which I normally don't do.

This, actually, since we have some very good photoshoppers, a lot of people who can fill a simple request and me.

What'd you want?

Thank you!

Umm... I would love a Parise one and Granlund one. It doesn't matter what uniform or what pictures. I would love it if their last names were somewhere on the icons. That would be wonderful.

No rush whatsoever, I thank you so much for the offer!

Agreed.

Chin up. Life will happen.

I spent a couple years spinning my wheels and now not a day goes by that isn't filled with things to do.

Exactly.

And then spend 15 minutes dealing with a blue inbox before you can start reading through threads you don't care about making sure nobody misbehaved

Here is a bit of "life advice" from an "old guy".

Remember the first three things that you think about immediately upon waking up. Don't revise to make yourself "feel" better. Take them exactly for what they are...

What are they?

This nearly completely subconscious process tells you what your priorities are at any given point in your life.

First thing you think of; Your highest priority.
Second thing you think of; Your second highest priority.
Third thing you think of; How you go about achieving the first two.
