I've been using the PM9 pattern on my sticks almost exclusively for about 10 years now, and I'm starting to notice it's availability is rapidly dropping. While each company claims to have a version of it (Warrior WO1, Easton E4, CCM P14, formerly Reebok P42), they are getting very hard to find on store shelves, at least in southern Ontario. I've never once seen a CCM P14, and the WO1 is even still called the Lupul for God's sakes. It's sad to see, as those who use this curve know, it's a beautiful blade. It gives you the ability to have the strongest hockey fundamentals across the board, like passing, pass receptions, poke checking and breaking up plays. Small things that you don't think of like keeping the puck on your backhand with one hand on your stick while you're ripping around the back of their net are really easy to do with it. The only slight downside could be wrist shot power. I've used it so long I can actually shoot harder with it than a P92, but I can still see the argument of not having a lot of toe on there. Is it just the retailers catering to the "Wheel Toey Ched Celley ya Duster" crowd? Is it just the area I live in? Seems like Bauer is the only company still putting it out at all. Crosby uses a curve almost identical to the PM9, so what gives? Don't we want to give kids the option of modelling their games after arguably the best player in the world?
