    Well having strong legs , means that you can get behind the shuttle , so having more time to implement a full powered shot.

    Consider this :

    If you have a very powerful smash , but always take the shuttle behind you - you can never implement the full power of your smash , because you will be off-balanced etc.

    If you have an average smash , but can get to the shuttle quickly and behind it , then you can implement the full power of your smash most of the time.

    Having strong legs meaning you would be able to sustain long rallies in each game because you have the stamina to move around the court. However, that doesn't mean you can move infinitely because your footwork is also important. If you do not know how to move efficiently, doesn't matter if you have strong legs, you will get tired very soon.

    Getting strong legs is not very difficult, simply do jogging, jumping ropes, and walking stairs will help you develop your legs. The difficult part is how to utilize those "weapons" in your game.
    sorry to say, but your legs and core are instrumental to a hard smash. i cant find the video right now, but there is a video on youtube by peter rasmussen showing in very good detail on how to smash properly.

    Personally, I think legs are to assist a jump smash, not to give you extra strength or power in smashing.
