I disagree, the more options you have at your disposal, the more successful you will be. Some situations, the slapshot is the better shot to use. And I will say this, shot accuracy can be overrated, it doesn't mean anything if the goalie has time to react to the shot. I had a hard, accurate wrister to begin with, but I was well aware I could create MORE chances if I had that slapshot in the arsenal, and I'd never make the switch to defense without it. People are starting to realize they need to get out of the way
