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.
I did a test this morning, and my shot release is roughly 60% faster including setup with a stick at shoulder height than a longer stick.
