I'm not saying I want Carter to shoot less or stop trying to snipe, but his aim could be better. Obviously it's not as simple as saying "I'm going to put the puck exactly here," but he could be much better. I mean, I'll take Stamkos with less missed shots and more goals over Carter any day, if we want to start getting into your numbers. He's the third highest on that list, but if you were to sort it by goals instead, he sure isn't. That's not a good thing.
Trying to warp Carter's inaccuracy into a good thing just doesn't hold water. Missing the net is missing the net, period.
Agreed, instead of always trying to hit the corners like he does from bad angles he should shoot low and look for a rebound.
