I think you've touched on a big part of it.
Wrist shots are all about weight transfer. The greater the weight transfer from (backward to forward) the more velociy & height you can achieve; in which case right now, you have limited weight transfer so the quality of your wristers are also limited appropriately.
It's funny now that you got me thinking of it. The basis of a great shot is not how savvy you are with your hands, but firstly how savvy you are on your skates.
