Eh, it hits the target, but from clips I've seen it's really slow. His release seems sluggish, and he's not getting a ton of power behind it. It's also not versatile because he can't get it off in tight spaces like Pulock.

Watch videos of Pulock shooting a slapper and then Ristolainen. You'll see what I'm talking about.

My only concern with Ristolainen is his slap shot.

EDIT: I will admit I was doing a disservice to him by jokingly comparing his slapper to Carle's, but his shap shot is definitely not the best.
