While looking at the Super Tacks As1 for pre order on some sites they show a P88 Ovechkin curve as an option. Does anyone know if this will this be a new crazy curve, or just their retail P80 (Bauer P88 clone)/P40 replacement? Noticed it though there seems to be no additional details that I have found.

If I were guess it’s now a true P88 clone at retail to replace the P40-

The Hossa/Mackinnon P40 isn’t showing up as available for preorder and had a much squarer toe IIRC. 

Popular player + popular pattern = sales. What’s funny is McDavid’s actual pattern is pretty close to a P88, while Ovechkin’s is close to a P28/P08/Kreps. Too late to swap?

Edit: Monkey has both the P40 and P88 for pre order, IW only has the P88. Weird.

McDavid's got a p45 iirc.

McDavid's pattern looks a lot like Easton's Iginla-Jr with a bit deeper curve.

It's generally a mid-curve with a pretty substantial degree of loft. It's a funny blade face. Kinda reminds me of a platypus.

Do you guys know if the JetSpeed stick will be offered in the new p88, if not how different is p40. CCM’s not having a p88 curve is the reason I haven’t tried one out in a while.

The P40 and P88 are very similar.  P40 is slightly shorter.  The toe of the P40 is slightly taller and square(ish).  The actual curvature of the blade is almost identical.
