Here are some names that haven't been mentioned... granted they weren't the "greatest of all-time" but they were very good and suprising considering the players.

Uwe Krupp - HARD wristshot... and he used it from the blue line.

Chris Simon - He's a goon, and it's a VERY slow release, but when he has time to pull the trigger he has a very hard and very accurate wristshot.

Actually 3 seconds is a ridiculously long time, but I definitely understand your point

Sakic's shot is legendary.

Right now?

Sakic, Kovalchuk, Ovechkin and Kovalev.

I couldn't tell you all time.

Naslund deserves some recognition. In his prime, when he was flying down the left wing and was at the top of the circle, he could beat anybody. That's why he was considered the best player in the league. He had one of the most deadly wrist shots.

It's gone now.

I would say Bossy, Kurri, Goulet, Sakic, and Bure would be my top 5.

Yeah, Naslund could be devastating. I remember threads just a few years ago comparing Naslund's wrist shot to Sakic's.

Gretzky once said that Lemieux could "snap the puck through a fridge door". I love that line.

Him and Sakic take the cake for me.

Good thread.

Sakic. Easily. If you are a short-ish goalie, he is the player you fear most.

When they compared Turris' shot to Sakic's I was skeptical but man can the kid fire it (and get it up high in a hurry). The comparisons aren't off at all. If you watch the NHL highlights from Sundays Ducks-Coyotes game you can see him score on a rediculous shot in the shootout.

No Gaborik on that list? He's got as quick of a release as any..

I think Toews shot looks more like Sakic then anyone I have seen...Turris looks more like Yzerman

Kovalev, anyone else seen the clips of him practicing with a steel puck his father made?

Someone I don't think was mentioned was John Ferguson, he could really rip it.

Lots of guys, Bossy had a very quick release... one of the hardest wristers though had to be Wendel Clark. It was amazing the power he managed to get out of his shots.

Here is a lesser player that had a fantastic wrist shot (not in the Bossy category of course): Dave Reid. Was never a big time goal scorer, but had a great wrist shot. Helluva PKer too.

Just thought he deserved some props.

According to Bobby Baun the hardest wrist shot he ever saw (and felt) was courtesy of Mr. Hockey - Gordie Howe.

And Boomer's ankle seconds that opinion.

I don't know how anyone could say Ovechkin...most goals doesn't mean best wrist shot. He doesn't even have the best wrister on the Caps.

The best wrist shot in the league right now belongs to Alex Semin (my apologies in advance for the Hagar soundtrack):

No need to apologize for a guy who is singing a song from of one of the greatest rock and roll bands. But I guess that's another forum entirely...
