Who has a better wrist shot, Kesler or Naslund (In his Prime)?

Ryan Kesler:

Markus Naslund:

I'm going with Naslund, not only was his shot powerful but accurate!

That Naslund wrister wins, mostly because it was SUCH a CLASSIC.

Remember him circling around the net and then coming out the far side, and the right by the faceoff dot he'd curl and let it rip?

Yeah, pure classic.

Nazzy no doubt. Way more accurate and a much a quicker release. Kesler takes a while to "load" up his wrist shot.

I think Nazzy had the better wrister because it was more accurate.

this shouldn't even be a question. In his prime Naslund had the best wrist shot in the NHL; it was accurate, hard and he had such a quick release. Kesler's wrist shot is hard and accurate but at times takes waaayyyy too long to let go

Kesler's wrister is a powerful and a hell of a howitzer, however, its become well known and damn too predictable now where he will skate over the blueline, cup the puck with his stick and trying to whip it with force. It may have worked last year several times, but his routine is too much the same and mundane thats its an easy read, therefore no longer effective. But he has had 5 straight seasons with 20+ goals.

Naslund on the other hand was like reading a book. You turn the next page and he gives you a different look, although his classic top of the circle wrister is a classic, he always found a new way to give his shot some flavour. A reason why he was able to score 40+ goals for 3 seasons and 7+ seasons with 25 or more. Also to note, his wrister was second to Joe Sakic's if not better....if your compared or even mention in the same breathe as someone who scored 600+ goals, you know Nazzy is a gamer.

You can tell the difference between Naslund's and Kesler's wrist shot right away. Kesler most likely had to work hard to achieve his high powered shot and make it somewhat accurate whereas Naslund's wrister was pure skill. Naslund's shot any day over Kesler's.

I'm gonna have to agree with the Homer Simpson face palm.

Naslund's for sure.

Most of Kesler's get blocked.

Nazzy's without a doubt. Kesler misses the net on too many occasions to be even compared to Nazzy.

There were only a few players who had a better wrister then Nazzy and trust me, there's not that many. Sakic would've been one of them. I don't think any current Canuck can even come close to comparing to Nazzy's.

Kess had a real laser last year, but I think Nazzy's was a better combo of accuracy and power.

nicely put; to go off topic a little bit (still about wristers) sure hope Danny can develop some form of a dangerous shot, he and Hank have been too easy to shut down b/c unlike Nazzy he doesn't move and dangle, nor does he have enough versatility to either go shoot or pass, w/ the Twins it's almost always pass around or slap passes nowadays.
