Which is why complaining about it is a massive red herring. If you want them to stop missing the net so much, you're also going to see their goal totals go down a bit most likely, because shooting to the goalie as opposed to the corners has less chance of touching twine.
No one is asking him to stop shooting for the corners (because most people realize that is why he pots as many goals as he does)... I, personally, want him to stop doing it when at terrible angles (and often from the freaking blue line) which results in it wrapping around the boards.
If you are fed a pass in the high slot and miss high and wide it hits the back boards and becomes a scrum behind the net, not an odd man rush the other way.
It is called playing smart and I, often times, don't personally think Carter plays very smart.
