Not to mention that unfortunately, a lot of those shots get blocked.

He is still young and I'm sure he can be molded to make better choices. All in all, the oilers are getting a good young player.
He sounds pretty good from an Oilers point of view. If you look at our roster, we barely have a single shoot-first player. All pass-first.
