Bad form? shooting and finishing nearly on my back knee

I practiced shooting yesterday on dry land, and my shots (wrist and slapshot) were progressively harder the lower I finished the shot. I was nearly to the point where my back knee (I shoot right, so right knee) was almost on the ground and my shots were reasonably hard.

Is this OK to do, or is it bad form?

It's pretty common on one timers. Watch Stamkos or Ovy for instance. I think it happens when you're getting both horizontal and vertical rotation on the shot.

Fine if you're stationary, but not good if you're in motion.

Cool, so if I'm hanging out on the blue line or otherwise stationary I can fire it up. Otherwise, I'll use the more tame versions.

Happens on one timers because the pass isn't always where you'd want it, especially if the pass is to far ahead of you. Probably dont want to be doing it under 'normal' shooting circumstances.

Yeah probably not something you want to practice doing, reminds me of Brett Hull doing one-timers.

Try and build strength in your wrists, that's how real goal-scorers score, just watch Crosby or Ovi shoot, super quick release, all in the wrists and forearms (hyperbole)

Dude no, it's bad form, someone blocks the shot, and here you are sitting on one knee, easy for them to get past you

You should only be shooting from one knee when you have to in order to be in position for the shot (usually one-timers).
