He'll need to shorten that a bit if he wants to get shots off in time.
I agree. Big slapshots have really diminished in usefulness. Players are quicker now. You don't have time for windups. I was listening to an interview with John LeClair where he was discussing this (after his big shot was discussed). You need a quick slapshot with little wind up or nasty wristers to get effective shots on net.
