Until it is flexible enough for reshaping, it is also a bad idea to do this yourself, you should go to a professional.I have never put a stick in boiling water to curve it before. The way I used to do it was to either hold the blade of the stick over the burner on the stove or heat it up with a blow torch. After it is good and hot curve it however you want it. Just don't get caught with too big of a curve or you might end up in the box for 2 minutes.

Boiling a stick will not do much, you need direct heat, on the blade, usually with a propane blow trorch. I simply look for a stick with as much curve as I like and buy it.

Having "too much curve" makes it harder to receive a pass, or to shoot a backhand shot. The puck will just dribble off the end of the blade.

All good points. However they only apply to a wooden blade. You cannot reshape a carbon fiber blade without significantly weakening it or completely ruining it. As said, there are a lot of different curve patterns to choose from these days, so I suggest trying out a few of your buddies' sticks to see what pattern you like, and simply buy it.

correction..........u can curve a full fibre glass hockey stick....i have alot of them and ive dun it before and it makes a sweet dont listen to whoever wrote that bull

How do you reshape a hockey stick?

You can curve the blade of your hockey stick by using a small propane torch and gently heat the blade (without burning it) and using gloves so as not to burn your hands. The fiberglass coating will melt a little allowing you to bend a curve in the blade. After you have the desired curve, put the blade in cool water. The blade should hold the curve. You can straighten the blade the same way. Note: You can get a penalty (and lose the stick) if the blade is too curved. 1/2" is the maximum allowed in the NHL.

Should you use a curved hockey stick?

Yes, you should use curved hockey stick as it makes passing, shooting, and stick handling better. There are two types of curves(right and left) and you should chose the stick which corresponds with the way you shoot.

Can you get a replacement blade for the o stick?

I don't believe that an official "replacement blade" is availible. And depending on where you broke it, the reinforcements such as graphite bridges and foam in the tapered zone below the holes make putting a blade in yourself quite difficult. however if you file the foam and such out, you should be able to stick a tapered blade in and save your money! i haven't tried this myself but i am currently going through the process as well. good luck and have fun playing the best game around
