Best release of all time
 
Who has the best overall release (quickness and power)?

All time:

Sakic
Hull

Currently:

Kovalchuk
Ovi

Add Semin to the current list.

Bure All Day 11-14-2012 09:14 PM

so many guys in the league today have underrated shots... Semin for sure, probably has the best wrist shot, datsyuk has a sick snap shot, really quick release... daniel sedin, pinpoint accuracy, decent power and release.. Heatley still has a great shot... too bad he doesn't really try anymore.

Bingo.

Sakic and Hull. But Sakic's wrist shot release was espically unbelievable.

livewell68 11-14-2012 10:04 PM

Bure, Bondra, Jagr, Bobby Hull, Lemieux, Sakic, Brett Hull, Kovalchuk, Ovechkin.

Naslund had a pretty good one. Would never say best of all time, but he deserves a honorable mention.

Shakey Rustie 11-14-2012 10:31 PM

When Sather cut Holik.

I like Semin's wrister better than Ovechkin's and Kovalchuk's. Just saying.

Haha, I like how you snuck Sedin in there. Your homer is showing.

Vankiller Whale 11-14-2012 11:36 PM

OV's wrister is still No.1 in the league for me.

Tarasenko 11-15-2012 12:13 AM

Of all time?
Mike Bossy for sure. Man, this guy could score from anywhere, anytime, whenever he wanted.

Maybe a bit, can't deny that he has a good shot though

ZARTONK 11-15-2012 12:51 AM

Sakic is probably best all time, kovalev wasnt bad too, current kovalchuck? Ovechkin? Semin?

Homer HM to markov, that guy has a sick wrister

KingKopitar11* 11-15-2012 12:56 AM

Lol nice thread title I actually was about to answer until I remembered we were talking about hockey.

The Perfect Human* 11-15-2012 01:12 AM

The beauty of a shot like Kovalchuk/Sakic is that it's hard for defensemen/goalies to tell when it's coming.

The beauty of a shot like Semin/Hull is that more often than not the goalie/defenseman knows its coming - they just can't do anything about it.

For me it's Semin for the best release all time.

AJMHABS 11-15-2012 01:35 AM

All time:
Sakic
Bossy
