To the original poster, they are VERY different curves and every aspect of your game that involves your stick (shooting, passing, stickhandling) may need to change. You may have to alter your shot mechanics to properly be able to shoot with the Zetterberg after coming from the Sakic. I've grown up using the Zetterberg and can also switch to a friend's stick with the Sakic curve and do just fine (once I adjust my shot mechanics a bit), but most guys I know that use the Sakic cannot simply pick up my stick and use it. Why are you switching?

Yeah, the curve and depth of the Zetterberg and Sakic are nothing alike. You'd be better off to try the Heatley or perhaps Iginla. Still mid curves I believe, just more tame than the Sakic.
I thought the Zetterberg and Sakic had more similarities (basically a sakic with closed face)? Basically I looking for something with less open face but with the same curve depth and lie as the Sakic (5 / 5.5). I find with Sakic most shots want to rise high too easily and often. Any suggestions, maybe a Heatley?
