It's not about the power of the shot though, it's the accuracy. We run into the same problem in TOR with Mo. The PP isn't about blasting it most of the time. A proper run PP has traffic and you want the puck tippable or sneaking through.
Depends on the skill set. I think that’s 100% accurate on your #1 unit where puck possession, cycling the puck to open up space, pinching, one-timer setups and tipped shots are effective but on unit #2 where you have your bigger guys or net crashers, behind the net possession keepers and garbage pickers, I like a big blast that creates scoring opportunities. It also scares and intimidates the defenders and their goaltender
Stone offers both a hard and accurate shot that goalies have a tough time tracking and holding on too allowing rebounds and 2nd shot opportunities. Lots of times when Stone’s shots get blocked defenders go down and either Stone or another player immediately pick the puck up again and get another shot off
Hanifin offers a great accurate shot that can be deflected and Weegar is a great pincher, one-timer and sniper
Andersson is really none of the above. He’s an okay puck distributor but his shot is neither hard nor accurate, it’s always placed right in to the goalie/logo.
Kylington & Zadorov have decent wrist shots and like to pinch & jump in the play but their shots are often too high and tend to rim around the boards and out giving up odd man rushes the other way or stopping the o-zone possession and creating scrambles
