That is hilarious! I'll bet there were no more sticks available because the back-up goalie / equipment manager signed elsewhere in the off-season and Lalime wasn't up to speed. Opps, that just happens on the Isle. Nevermind.
To quote the cbh.com webmaster, they only had a right-handed stick of that brand available that day, and it was decided that getting the brand that Martin endorses was more important than getting a stick that was left-handed.
