I used to have the same problem as you where no matter I took the shot it would just slide along the ice. I always used to think that you were supposed to take slapshots with the "middle" of the blade but this year I've been hitting the puck closer to the toe of my blade and my shots have alot more lift.

I'm not sure if that's proper technique but it's been working. Good luck!
you shouldnt shoot a slap shot off the toe of your blade, you wont get nearly as much power. if you shoot more from the heel you will get alot more power. the follow through is key. where your stick is pointed after on your follow through is where the puck should go
