Heavy shots are hard and easier to track. However, having a heavy shot or a cannon from a guy like Shea Weber isn't always preferred. When you have a big body presence parked in the blue paint, not having a defenseman or forward at the point position with a cannon or heavy shot isn't the end of the world. Brian Rafalski partially made a living off his "soft" shot. This was a shot that was very tip-able for some of the experienced Devils forwards and guys like Johan Franzen and Thomas Holmstrom once he moved on to Detroit.
