Best place to get someone really good playing wing is to get a defenseman coming around behind the net. They can't get out once they're back there. I throw a lot of hip checks back there. You're already in front of the net on offense so it's an easy move to someone bringing the puck around behind the net to start their breakout. Just swing in low with your backside toward the boards and watch them fly. It's also a good spot because you won't be caught out of position if you miss.
Playing wing probably offers you the least chances at really nailing someone in the open ice but you can still bang in the corners pretty well. Leave the open ice ones for the defenseman. As cool as open ice hits are having the guy that you miss score a goal sucks even more. I like your enthusiasm though, Happy Hunting!! Oh yeah, keep your head on a swivel afterward because they'll be coming back at you.
