NO NO NO and NO. Daigle can't shoot worth CRAP. This was in fact his biggest problem, his attrocious shot. In the 1996-1997 season, Daigle had a respectable 26 goals and 25 assists. The next year, he decided that he could become a 50 goal scorer, and his fledgling career went completely into the tank, he got traded, and traded again the next year, and left the league. You do NOT want this guy shooting MORE, as he can't do it succesfully. You want him causing havoc with his speed, let him buzz around and get the defense in knots. You don't want him thinking he is Brett Hull or something silly like that. But definately NOT shooting more.
