However, it is the WORST shot you can possibly use in about 99.99% of all situations. The ONLY time you ever wind up for a shot like that is when you are wide open and have the time. You ever see a wrist shot get blocked at the point and turned into an odd man rush? No. And if so, rare. Slappers are the least accurate, most likely to snap your stick, most likely to get blocked, and easiest for a goaltender to read. Unless you are Malkin, Hossa, or some of the guys you named, you should not do it.
What was missing on the power play were guys who would shoot the puck. Period. It's called a power play, not a power pass.
And there is no such things as striking fear into anyone. This is not the Might Ducks movie. These guys do not get fear when someone is taking a shot.
Wow dude. That may have been one of the best posts I have read on this board in a looong time. Agree wholeheartedly.
