There are more ways than just one to saucer pass and having the whole blade open is definitely one of them and in fact the easiest one to learn.
Your wrists are always used in anything done in hockey with a stick.
A good one to learn is the one on the backhand, man what a great tool that is whether you are a defenseman or forward. That one can be with the blade angle open like the forehand way but on the backhand or you can just use the toe portion to make a short distance one for about 2 or 3 feet over a sweepcheck.
Many many variations of the saucer pass.
The one I have difficulty with is the goaline to center redline break away saucer pass that has about 5 to 6 feet of air height and having it drop right on a guy's stick or close enough to grab it. The hard part is getting that much oomph on it and not icing it by having more of a pop fly look to the arc yet still saucerized.
