In conclusion, the next time you go buy yourself a goaltender stick. Ensure that the stick is well balanced. Find the stick's centre of gravity, see how the stick feels when you move it around holding it correctly. 

Next, ensure the paddle length is adequate by taking your regular stance and looking at the blade of the stick. (this works better if you have your skates on)

Make sure the stick material suits your needs. Favour fibreglass or wood for durability or carbon for extremely light weight. (As mentionned previously, I find balance is more important than weight).

Finally, check the stick's flex and curve as per your personal preference.
