If you're talking about a pure shooter, they're shooting to beat the goalie... not rack up SOG statistics. They don't pick winners and losers based on SOG (we would have really *ing sucked in previous years if they did).
In my mind they are two very different shooters and each has his place, depending on the situation you would pick either of them to be your shooter. Briere clearly believes in hitting the target and then slight mi****s move to the corners whereas Carter believes in aim small - miss small, aim for a particular spot and if you miss you only miss by a little because of the added concentration.

Not sure it works for Carter but I'm glad we have both of them either way!
