I'm not one to believe there are certain curves for certain positions, but there are certain curves to help your game. If you take a lot of wrist shots, use a curve that you have the most accuracy and velocity. If you stickhandle a lot, maybe you want a curve with the right lie/rocker combination. If you want to tip pucks or intercept passes, try a longer blade. If you're a big passer, try a flatter curve. If you play on the boards a lot, try a squarer toe, etc.

My game is all about puck movement and snap shots, so I switched to the Drury. The flatter blade is great for forehand and backhand passing and improve my accuracy on shots. The loft is high so that I can turn my wrists over and drive the stick into the ice more for slap shots.
