Use a blade comparison chart to compare between manufacturers.
A heel curve is definitely the way to go. I use a Zetterberg (Forsberg curve which seems to be getting fazed out is the exact same curve) cause it has a huge sweet spot. I've also liked the Crosby.

As a D-Man you also want to use a stick with a bit higher flex rating as D players tend to take more slappers and snappers.
