When I do the powerful method and transfer from my left to the right, I don't get nearly the stick flex in the shot, and while I have more room to generate puck speed, I don't get it, when compared to the other method.
The puck is probably too far out infront of you, if you pull it in closer, and put more of your weight over the stick when you shoot the powerful way you will get more power. The speed comes more from your Core than your stick with this shot.
