Thanks for the comments. I had been using some roller blades until I broke them, so was used to the additional height. If I had choked up on the stick a bit more like Hockeyfan68 showed in his video, I probably would have straightened my top arm a bit more. It is something I'll definitely look at.
The other big thing I noticed is that I'm staring at the puck too much and not picking my target. When I looked at the camera, I hit the camera
I think I was a bit nervous to completely miss the puck totally. Being able to slow down the video and really study the motion, and where I was striking the puck on my blade really helped me.
When I first built the pad and set up the net, I hated shooting slapshots because my hands were too close together and I was getting vibration like crazy in the shaft which hurt. But it was watching the videos in this thread and the howtohockey website which helped me analyze what I was doing wrong and helped me improve.
