Do I need a big curve to be good?

Which Curve?

Most minor hockey players think that a big curve on their hockey stick blades will improve their level of play and even improve the quality of their shots. This assumption is absolutely wrong. Great players in the NHL like Doug Gilmour and Theoren Fleury play with an almost flat blade and they manage to score and play better than anyone else.

The blade is preference Fluery probably picked a flat blade because he cant perform as well with a curve. Fluery and Gilmour though really?
