I have a (probably incorrect) theory that slappers come more natural to guys who have their dominant hand on the bottom. There's exceptions and what not, but if my theory's correct and the bottom hand drives the slapper, it would make sense. Meanwhile wristers and snappers seem more push-pull and top hand driven, like passing and puck handling, so it comes more natural to guys with the dominant hand on top.

My gut says if you're an aggressive forechecking forward and you can handle a longer stick, don't worry about the slappers so much and just get off quick shots when you get a chance.
