look into the ak27 blade too..
Sakic is one of the biggest commercially available curves.... Iginla would be modest.

You want to look at your game and any issues shooting you may have. If you take a lot of slapshots, go for a heel curve. Wristers, go for a mid or a toe. If you get shots up no problem, get a closed or neutral curve. If you need a little help getting shots up, go for something slightly open. If you tip a lot of shots, go for something very open like a Drury. If you stickhandle, round toe. If you need to catch pucks that are careening around the boards a lot, square toe.

But if you're comfortable with what you have, find something similar.
