If you can pick that corner with a quick snap shot, you'll have a very high shooting percentage with this move.

If you notice what Jussi Jokinen did on all those moves, he changed his shooting angle causing the goalie to move which opened up a bunch of holes. When dealing with goalies (especially butterfly goalies) the key is to get them to move and give yourself some holes to shoot at.
I used to think so too until I started facing aggressive goalies that love the pokecheck!
