I agree. This type of shot is used when you are in close to the goalie. But, this is a very easy shot to stop due to the angle of approach on the shot and the angle that the goalie has on the shooter.

If the goalie is doing a two legged pad slide, you might be able to get this over his pad. But I have stopped a many shots like this by lifting the pad.

Plus, the shot is very easy to read. The minute the shoulder drop from the shooter and the stick blade goes at that 45 degree angle, you know it's going up. Then it just a matter of taking away the space.

Like IniNew said..."For wrists shots and slap-shots rolling the wrist is key to gaining lift."
