Re: Noob. Helps on wristshots and slapshots?
You will soon get some great advice from the experts, but for now, yes, your stick is way too long. Catch will argue that this is an impossibility, but we are talking hockey here.
When you're standing in regular shoes, your stick should come to about your nose. While a longer stick will help a defenseman deflect shots and make poke checks, it's apparent from your post that the length of your stick is hampering your ability to handle the puck.
