I think it is important to differentiate between shooting in a competition and shooting during game action.
In a warm up or competition, the shooter has all kinds of time to set up, wind up, release, and look at his shot.
In a game, you look, wind, fire and try not to get your head crushed by the oncoming checker.
Souray sure had a bomb, and he got it off pretty quickly. In his early Hab days, he could not hit the side of a house, in his last Habs year.... it was incredible how he could find a pin hole from 30 feet away.
I think, in the heat of action... besides Sourary, the only ones I can say I truely remember are Malahov and Gingras.
As for forwards... Ryder, A Kost and Dagenais were (are) pretty impressive to, but they usually do not do the full wind up.
