A few things I'm thinking about with slappers:

1. I used to take the windup back away from my body, and now I take it straight up in the air almost. I saw Ovechkin doing this, tried it for myself, and my slappers are quicker to get off and seem like they have better zip.

2. I was thinking about this last night, it's probably better to focus on a fast shooting motion than taking a strong/hard shot. I tend to do the latter, but I would think that the speed of the blade/stick has a bigger impact on the shot. Something I plan on working on.

3. Speaking of small windup, I want to really focus on my short windup shots. Only winding up to the knee height or so. And then work from there.
