Hockey HOF: How hard can you shoot?

I was just at the Hockey HOF this past weekend- visiting Buffalo. Made the ride up to Toronto to visit the hall.

Went to get my shot power tested and i was very suprised at my results. They unfortunately didnt allow slapshots because too many sticks had been broken of late.

the choices of stick were "Salming"- which is a discontinued line much like the mission whole sticks. very nice feel and whip to them. i went 3 times for a total of 15 shots (all wrist shots). my high was 71 mph, with an average of about 67 mph. most shots were upper 60s. the operator told me that 71 mph was top 5 hardest shots hes ever seen and the hardest that month.

he had seen a player from the ECHL shoot an 83 mph wrister!! and also said that sid the kid averaged around 65 mph.

anyone get their shots tested? post it here...
