HMan described it well. If you think of weight transfer, all that is will be forward momentum, which increases speed, but doesn't affect the trajectory.

Without the wrist snapping, all you're doing is passing the puck really hard, and that will never raise the puck unless it kind of gets bobbled up in the air.

By cupping the puck, opening the blade as the puck rolls down towards the toe, then snapping your wrists aggressively while closing the blade, you're keeping the puck on the blade while you direct the shot by pointing your stick at the target on the follow through.

That video linked above is great, as it this one.
