Speed and timing and of course accuracy. The hardest shots come from efficient weight transfer and balance. If you shoot left, your right foot becomes the pivot and fulcrum. Better goalies are not intimidated by hard shots as they are by shooters that throw their reaction time off. Luc Robtaille,Charlie Simmer and Rob Brown were all considered sub par NHL skaters in their day. Guess what? They were big snipers and scored a whack of goals. Their trick was fooling the reaction timing type goalies as to when and where they would release their shots. Mario Lemieux fooled goalies all the time in just the same way. Once the goalie committed Mario knew where to shoot.
