1. I can shoot harder and more accurately to top left, bottom left, and the five hole. I have trouble shooting at the right side. Either I miss way wide or wind up shooting into the middle of the net. Are there any tips to remedy this?
2. What is the most important shot for a D man to master first?
Agree. Learning to do everything with your head up makes things a lot easier, especially when trying to pick a corner to shoot at.
Being a forward, nothing is better then getting a good hard wrist shot 1-2 feet of the ice. High enough the goalie has to worry about covering more then the bottom part of the net and also gives the option to tip the puck higher up into the net or lower into the corners/five hole.
We crawl before we walk and walk before we run. Master the wrist shot and the snapshot, slapshot will come a lot more natural.
Hope this helps.
