Pretty much any blade that is made of ABS plastic will suit you well. They're cheap and I know Easton and Koho make them with wooden shafts so you don't need to get a composite shaft and blade combo. The blades run about 15 bucks and the sticks 15-20.
It also depends on the surface you're playing on indoors. Lots of rinks these days use the sport court thing, which won't really wear down a wood stick...but beware of driveways and asphalt on those things, your blade will look like a banana very shorty.
