Lie is as important and possibly more important than stick flex, which is probably more important than actual curve. If you have the wrong lie you will most likely flutter pucks, miss a lot of passes and have a lot of pucks roll off your blade. Quick test is to check your tape for wear patterns.
Agree, I can get used to a different curve and deal with a stiffer flex. The one thing I have a very hard time with is the wrong lie. For example, if your lie is wrong and the toe of your blade is off the ice. You've in essence shortened the length of your blade. Not a good thing if you're someone who takes a lot of wrist shots.
