The Slapshot

I think that's what were missing...

After watching the Rangers and Pens... watching Malkin blaze a slapper past Lundqvist glove side, watching Hossa do the same.

You got that feeling that if these guys got the puck in a good spot, with time to shoot, it was going to be a goal.

The kind of shot Shanny used to have, a "Buzz bomb", the kind of shot Jagr used to have from the point of the one timer.

I really think that's something this team really missed last year when Shanny and Jagr either couldn't or wouldn't let em go like they used to.

The defense starts to collapse down low taking away the passing game when they have little fear of an outside shot.

Do we have a guy who can strike fear in a goalie from shot alone?

Can Naslund, or Zherdev be that guy? Drury has a shot, but he can't seem to either pin point it or release quickly enough to be that kind of guy.
