slaptshot on a penalty shot ? It works.
 
Just saw Rolston slap one by Luongo on a penalty shot. It's pretty weird to watch.

Ghost of Saku 11-02-2006 08:54 PM

Yeah, looked like it caught Luongo off-guard.
Could we possibly start seeing some slapshots during shootouts?

Form and Substance 11-02-2006 09:00 PM

haha I think Luongo was too busy laughing.

That's exactly what my mom said when we went to shootouts versus Toronto. Just have him skate up to the blue line and blast away.

I always do that at nhl 2007, it works most of the time;)

I think only a few players in the league can pull it off, especially on Luongo.

Clumsyhab 11-02-2006 09:47 PM

Souray can only slap on a one-timer. I can see him shoots on the board, wait for the rebound and BANG, a 110 mph one timer top corner.

Captain Saku 11-02-2006 09:47 PM

seriously... it would only take Souray to hit the goal and I think it's in !

phil 11-02-2006 09:47 PM

"and why didn't we keep Dagenais, he had a great slapshot" NO we can send any other guy and he'll be better than Dagenais

CoupeStanley 11-02-2006 09:49 PM

Good thing that was a penalty shot and not a shotoout because I've him in my pool!

Hackett 11-02-2006 10:00 PM

speaking of shootouts.... how about mike johnson?

We went through seven shooters against TO and he never came up

I wonder how far down the depth chart he is.

Anyways, we know he has a great shot and tonight, he displayed a sick deke....

Blades 0f Steel 11-02-2006 10:07 PM

If he stopped skating to shoot it, it shouldn't have counted.

That's the rule?

I've always though, you couldnt go backward but I didnt know about that.

I don't think you see many slapshots in shootouts because players rarely get a chance to practise it. The last thing coaches want is their players taking slappers on their own goalies from 20 feet out in practice.

Actualy it's not that clear. A player I forgot who did a deak that where he completly stopped and brought the puck back behind him and shot and scored and it was allowed because the spirit of the rule is more to prevent guys from wasting time and doing wrap arrounds and stupid stuff like that.

...but we just saw one on a penalty shot...what's the difference?

yeah, its not really black and white to my understanding

as long as players aren't doing unfair things like you just listed, I think you can get away with anything

Not true. He skated in and carried the puck on the left wing vs Toronto last weekend and zipped it past Aubin to tie the game at 4-4. His shot is deadly whether it be a one-timer or teeing it up after receiving it.

Also because the slapshot isn't the most effective shot in hockey. It's really good when there's traffic in front of the net and when you keep it low..

A wristshot with a real quick release is what's the most dangerous I would say.

Well you're right...it's to prevent, say, a player from trying to deke a goalie to the left, stopping, then carrying it to the right and tucking it in.

But no, it's not too clear.

Dr_Hook 11-02-2006 10:31 PM

I say put Souray 1st in the next shootout; he just has to slowly skate in, take his biggest wind-up ever, then... dekes his way towards the empty net ! :D
