The Leafs lost last night after defenseman Pavel Kubina’s stick shattered at a crucial moment.
Do you think defenders should go back to the more trustworthy wooden sticks?
Tampa sticks it to Leafs
Seems like the companies are promoting them because they can make much more profit on them than cheaper, wooden sticks.

I didn't say wooden sticks won't break. I said they were more "trustworthy" (your word) It is very difficult to tell if or when a composite stick is going to break, however with a wooden stick you can see if it is damaged and grab a new one before the next shift. Not foolproof but effective. I don't remember watching hockey in the wooden stick era and see one break just taking a pass, it happens all the time now.

MacInnis could still fire the puck at over 100 MPH with a wooden stick so they cant be all that bad.
