The shot doesnt have to be 100mph, it just has to get to the net. Force the goalie to make a save and control the rebound. I think it is also the reason for many of the Rangers forward now driving to the net on a more consistent basis. They know the puck will find its way there which creates chances and havoc in front of the other teams net.
Absolutely. It has a lot to do with his stick as well. He's much more comfortable rushing the puck as opposed to stick handling at the point.
