No kidding, I sent that post to a couple of people on my team.
Great Post

How do guys take those wickedly powerful off-balance shots? I've seen guys shoot from positions where it would be near impossible to get the weight transfer down, and yet their shots are still rockets.

Does anyone else like to dig their toes and keep their hands forward?

Especially on wrist shots, or quick release shots, I like to keep my body down on the puck, dig my toes a bit and explode through my lead shoulder on the follow-through.

This might not be a well known technique, but it really helps you develop a quick release that still has great velocity - as long as you remember to keep your hands forward. It also helps you keep the puck low.

Sounds like you're leaning way into it with your back, am I correct?

Kind of. More like coiled, lets far apart for a base, and then aimed down towards your front skate while loading up your stick.

Maybe I should take a picture.
