You could try it, but it's not a hard and fast rule. A lot of blades have a rockered heel and toe so they won't ever lie flat until you close them (Sakic for example). That lets you stickhandle with an effective 5 lie and shoot in tight with an effective 6 lie for example.

I'd love to talk to a pro gear rep to see what they think about it. Do most pros use flat or rockered blades? Do they follow that blade flat on the ice rule to chop the sticks? What about the guys who use long sticks? Where do they like to shoot and how flat is the blade on the ice? Etc.
