It's all personal preference as to which stick, curve, and length, but there are some guidelines.

It's best to have as much blade flat on the ice for passing. To do this, you need the correct lie and stick length. If the tape on the bottom of your blade wears a lot more at the heel, try a lower lie (or a longer stick). If it wears more at the toe, try a higher lie (or a shorter stick).

The flatter the blade, the more predictable the passing will be. If you have a big curve, you need to push the puck differently as it rests on different parts of the curve. Obviously with practice you can overcome this.
