When choosing a hockey stick it is really important to make sure you make the choice of length and flex. If you have a stick that is too stiff with too high of a flex rating you will not be able flex the stick enough. If this is the case you will not get all the benefits out of the stick and not be able to shoot as hard and might have troubles lifting the puck. If you have too soft of a stick you will likely break it because it was not stiff enough.
