Your slap shot was ok, but the wrister needed some help. You looked a little off balance, flat footed I would say, and seemed to have trouble coordinating your arms with your lower body.

Check this video of Mike Camalleri, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NNDqs7dyhZc Look at it from 1:00-1:05 to see him in slow mo. His weight transfer begins, then his top arm whips into his body and the bottom arm pushes out immediately after. He also has good footwork, notice how his back foot really doesn't get off the ice. Keeping it down more can increase your balance, especially on skates. Remember, the arms should be where the least of the power comes from.
