Get in a ready position and hold your stick. Observe how it 'lies' on the ground. Does it seem to feel comfortable when it's flat or does it feel more natural heelside/toeside? If the latter then adjust accordingly. Tape your stick blade then go play one game of street hockey (on skates). If the tape wears on the heel, get a lower lie. If it wears on the toe use a higher lie. In case anyone is wondering why this is important, it is because having the correct lie translates to having ALL of your stick blade on the ice.
