No one pattern is perfect for all types of shots/passes/stick handling moves, but with practice you can get good at everything with any pattern. Find one pattern you're most comfortable with overall and stick with it. One basic tip is to keep the puck at the deepest part of the curve (i.e. near the heel for a heel curve, mid blade for a mid curve, closer to the toe for a toe curve) at the start of the shot. NHL players use everything from nearly flat blades (like Crosby) to insanely huge, super open toe curves (like Ovechkin), and all of them can do anything with the puck fantastically well, it's really just what you're most comfortable with.
