I'd go with a shaft/blade combo over a OPS at his point. For someone like yourself. The difference between a decent shaft/blade combo and a OPS would be minimal.
You could go with something like this.
You're under $100 and still have a nice feeling durable stick. Easton makes anice shaft and some are pretty cheap $$$. You should give them a look. If you are buying it from a shop, ask for help. People there should be able to help you buy a stick that fits your needs and won't kill your bank account. Remember, anytime you try something new go cheap. That way if you don't like it you aren't into for all that much.
I like deep curves because I handle the puck a lot. The Thornton curve is really good for handling the puck and wrist shots. You can still get a decent slapper with too. If you want more hieght to your shots get a blade with an open face.
If you want a OPS, check out the RBK 4k or the Warrior Royal. The Warrior being the more durable of the two. CCM makes a very durable OPS and hockeymonkey.com has some on closeout.
