Why is this so hard to do?

Are you serious? It isn't very hard at all ... seriously it isn't. Hold it loosely and twirl it.

I mean who has never done this? .... not even a couple of times going in to take a faceoff or something?

Yeah man, just hold the stick loosely in both hands, and then move your lower hand in a circular motion.

We really need a video to see if this is possible.

Can you please provide one of someone unable to do this?

Someone in a coma is acceptable, as long as they have a hockey stick in their hands, and there is some movement of the stick, however slight.

Radulov's technique is so effortless, he's a natural. That's NHL caliber stick twirling. I don't think your guy's twirling is even close to his...

I guarantee 99.9% of the posters on these boards could not even get ONE twirl of Radulovian quality. Ever. That guy is slick.

It really is hard to do it like he does... Why did this thread get flamed, LOL.

Seriously, I want a video of one of you doing it like him....

It really is an easy thing to do though, but like everything else, you will get better at it with practice.

I'm sure that wasn't Radulov's first time twirling a stick. You're probably right that not everyone can give it a Radulov quality twirl in this thread.

But seriously, its pretty easy, just loosen your hands and move your bottom hand in a circular motion, and then once you get the momentum going you can just move the bottom hand up and down (no more need for circular motion).

Keep practicing, and you'll be a veteran stick twirler in no time. lol

I was joking around when I said that about a Radulov quality twirl.

I mean... it is pretty easy and it's an odd question (because it's a completely meaningless skill) but I suppose it's not SO easy that anyone should just be able to pick it up and make it look like it's something they've been doing forever.

I'm gonna have to practice this move.

But first, I have to read the "mouth guard recommendation" and "hockey-bag size" threads.
