I know I was always taught to shoot from mid blade, this video advocates a different technique than what most of us have learned, which is what makes it interesting.
Diff situations obviously call for diff techniques which is why I found it interesting. Like most people, I was a heel to toe shooter but only if I had time to either sweep the puck back or skate a little ahead of the puck. It's good to see the toe technique for those times you need to bring the puck in closer to the body.
