In a game situation, the harder and quicker you can get the shot off, the higher chances of scoring. Even from a stand still. You're saying you wont bother shooting unless your in motion? Have you been hanging out with Scott Gomez?
If you can shoot harder from standstill, maybe a shot that the goalie would normally wrap up will drop down for a rebound. Never pass up a shot on net, since todays game is all about getting in shooting lanes and taking away the shot.
I keep thinking of the Schremp highlight video:
So many of those goals are wristers he either steps into or waits until the defender screens the goalie or the goalie drops. Excellent stuff.
But yeah I almost never shoot from a stand still, especially if the goalie has the angle on me. I try and get some movement so I can get the goalie moving and get some power into the shot.
