Hadfield, like several other National Hockey League shooters, has rediscovered Hi'; backhand shot as an offen- sive weapon now that the curved slick has been all but legislated out of existence. Chicago's Slam Mikita and Bobby Hull, who started the hooked blade trend some eight years ago, Phil Esposilo of Boston and New York's Had- field and Rod Gilbert were the players most affected by the NHL's ruling last summer which cut the allowed curve down to a meagre one-half inch. It's (he said Had- field. "They were always complaining. ExPORTA "And you know. They're al- says making new rules to hurt the shooters." If the goalies were com- plaining about the curved sticks, it wasn't without rea- son. The hooked blade made sticks act like sling shots and often the puck would sail or dip as it neared the net. They made goaltending an even more hazardous profession than it already was. At the height of the curved craze, blades were hooked inches, providing a neat pocket in which skaters could cradle the puck. But the hook necessarily eliminated Ihe back-hand as an effective manoeuvre. That didn't seem to bother Mikita, Chicago's slick little centre, who is credited wilh producing Ihe first curved slick when he stuck a blade under ;i dressing room door.

Hull made tlie curved blade a dangerous weapon and used it to set a single-season record with 58 goals a couple of years ago. He wasn't happy about havering lo discard it.
