Probably Souray. It's true that he benefits from his high tech sticks but I can't think of anyone else.

The notion that a spectator can see the difference between an above average shot an an exceptional one is ridiculous.... A 100mph shot from the blue line gets to the net 0.04 seconds faster than a 90mph shot.

Yes, but if the little hairs on your neck stand up and you involuntarily utter "holy schmoly" which delays your next gulp of beer THEN you know it's the 100mph shot.

Ribeiro

The first name that seriously came to mind was Gaston Gigras. I vaguely remember him scoring from the red line.

Gingras had a wicked one. He took out Guy bouncing one off his ankle. Lemaire often would score from the line as he would turn back to play defensively. He was actually frustrating to watch at times. Frank, Larry, Guy, Guy, Steve, Stephane all had good ones. Shots from the point are often different than from other positions or whne moving. Bobby Hull, Guy Lafleur and big Frank were amazing to watch.

Gingras was the first guy I thought about too. Hard to compare with the composite sticks of today.

Richer and Courtnall are good calls.

Can you imagine if Composite sticks were around when Gingras played? That is one scary thought.

Its really hard to tell because the older players had different sticks and different ice quality. For example,you can't really argue that Geoffrion had a harder shot than Kostitsyn or Souray because you don't know what the other would have done in the other era.

I was debating once about who has the worst slap shot, I think, talent for talent, it's Koivu. Well, it's hard to tell because he takes them SO rarely... I don't think I've seen him do it more than once or twice, even though he's obviously been in situations where it may been the best play to make. I'd be really interested to see how he actually does.

I think it would be a tie between Terry Harper and Lyle Odelein.
