Are you talking about a good slapsot in ice hockey or street hockey? I'd think it makes a difference between hitting a ball and a puck. Pucks are heavier and lower to the ground, so of course you want to hit the ice before the puck building tension and 'whipping' it, as has been mentioned. If you're playing ball hockey though I'd wonder if you aren't just as well off 'smacking' the ball, while only skimming the ground. A ball being lighter and taller your fastest follow through might do just as well as building tension in front of the ball?
