If you're not getting off your shots and passes quickly from the point, you're not even succeeding at being a decoy on offense. When you're taking your time to load up a big shot or otherwise give the opposition time, they're going to square up to block and the goalie is probably going to be ready for it if it gets through. This has less to do with kick points than it has to do with fundamentals; defensemen move the puck in the defensive and the offensive zone. If you're not getting shots and passes off quickly then you're slowing down your entire team's flow and severely limiting your own opportunities.
