I don't think there's a specific "This one's for wristers, this other one's for slappers" blade. Generally speaking, if you want some more loft in your shot, you're going to want an open face blade.
Here's a handy little chart:
Here's a handy site which explains the pros/cons of different blade options (types of curves, face angles, lies, etc):
A lot of the good players I know love the Drury curve, but I (probably because I suck) can't do anything with that type of curve. It all comes down to preference.
But if you just want to add some air under your shot, then you might want to try out a Sakic curve (slightly open face) if you've been using a Modano curve (closed face), etc etc.
