This awesome package comes with a great simple but very dynamic design.
Phaneuf (C05) Lapa:
Advantages: This curve has many features that benefit defensemen. The square toe is excellent for pulling pucks off the boards that have been rung by forwards. The long length is excellent for getting the puck deep, as well as shooting one-timers and poke-checking. Long blades like this one are also good for getting the puck on net quickly. Lastly, the P02 curve is great for slappers.
Drawbacks: Most players prefer a round toe for pulling off moves (toe-drag etc). This is also a pretty big curve, which makes passing and shooting on the backhand difficult.
Bottom Line: This curve is great for defensemen. The long length and square toe will have you playing D like Mr. Phaneuf or Niklas Lidström.
