Best Wrist Shots in NHL History

What better offensive weapon is there than a strong and accurate wrist shot? It's more deceptive than a snap shot, more accurate than a slap shot, and when performed by certain individuals, can be released quicker than any other attempt at goal.

Slap shots steal the show, clocking the top speeds on the gun, and dangles get the highlight reel, but the wrist shot is the most fundamental necessity of any offensive player (besides skating, of course). A quick look at this list of names will leave no doubt that a wicked wrister translates to success on the ice.

Take a journey through time with me, as I examine the players with the fifty best wrist shots in the history of the NHL. Also, feel free to follow me on twitter @MatthewFairburn.
