But probably not, no, I can't shoot like that Edina HS kid nor can I shoot like Bjugstad.
It's really not as hard as you're thinking it is. I've only been playing hockey for 2 years and ever since I saw that video I've been shooting off the toe of my P92 TotalONE and my shot has visibly improved. I mean, Easton definitely has a point in saying that this is a more "evolved" form of shooting because if you look at modern day NHL'ers and how they take their snap-shot, almost all of them are shooting off the toe of their blade. I feel like my stick flexes MUCH more when I load it up from the toe. And also, just think about the mechanics of a snap-shot (modern day)... it just makes more sense to pull the puck in a little bit with your toe and load up and snap it off.

That said, Idk if Easton's new blade pattern (what is it the E28 or some crap?) will really make much of a difference in doing so but I would like to try it out for myself.
