To be honest its not necessarily a bad thing. I mean everyone loves a hard slap shot and nothing looks better than a cannon to the top shelf but I personally find it frustrating, either watching NHL or playing, to see Dmen trying to go for the cannon when often a hard quick snapper or wrister will be:

1) more accruate
2) quicker to get off (which is infinitely more important than power).
3) provide an opportunity for a rebound.

Just me 2 cents.
