Is that standard practice? For the past couple of years I've had very few problems with my slapshot (any i had were as a result of using specific sticks) and I've always tried to initially make contact with the puck using the heel of the blade. Been taking slapshots like that as long as i can remember, partly as a result of getting some tips from teammates and partly as a result of practice and just going with what worked. Do the majority of people tend to make contact with the middle of the blade?
