I play mostly wing but have found success as an offensive defenseman. I'll probably be looking to use thing stick at a forward position but slapshots will not be out of the question.

In the Bauer line, if you like the Malkin curve, but want something a touch more aggressive, you should check out the Staal curve. The Staal is basically the Malkin, but with a higher lie, and a bit more open. If you poke around you can sometimes find One95 pro-stocks for about $150, or the standard sticks online can be had for about $190 (a touch out of your budget, I know, but it's a very nice stick).
