NHL to Allow Bigger Stick Curves

http://sports.espn.go.com/nhl/news/story?id=2588105

changed from half inch curve to a three quarter inch curve. Also some new rules on diving, and the home team can choose to go first or second in a shootout.

Good changes.....Forsberg should bring his credit card with him when he plays!!!

Do you think there are still players with irregular curves with this new rule?

Kovalchuk will find a way.

i kind of think the part where you get fined for askin for a stick check is wrong, i think that before a shootout all of the sticks should be checked......but i do agree kovalchuk will find a way

I agree with you. The best thing would be to check all the sticks before and after the game (as in car sports, where cars are checked before and after the race), or, at least, randomly....but that's dreaming too much

That Kovalchuk photo in tsn.ca main page is frightening: how can he use that helicopter blade???

Jagr's stick blade will look like Captain Hook's hand with this new rule

Malkin's blades are just as bad as Kovalchuk and Jagr.

Did not know that. Very good info

I guess there won't be any back hand roofs like the one Crosby does coming from Malkin. Oh well Guess there has to be something the kid is not great at.
