I'd recommend the smart hockey ball( or training with a ball ) for repetition and muscle memory. I've used a shotpad and flypucks as well and they can simulate ice fairly well and offer heavier weighted pucks for practice, but they only work together. A training ball can be used damn near anywhere. Both help greatly. If you want to add another dynamic, make yourself a weighted stick( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kwz43l6WrzM ) and you'll notice an every greater difference in strength.

Anything you do off-ice will never be 100% accurate, but can get close enough for the repetition to be there. Fine tune everything when you get on the ice.
