Lets do a little math....
In general you are right of course, but your stats are attempted shots and not 'shots on net', and if you want to address Carter missing the net, you should probably add that factor.

The numbers show that both Ovechkin and Carter hit the goal on app. seven of ten shots. Carter a little more in the last two seasons, Ovechkin virtually unchanged for the past four years.

NB: Where do you find attempted shots? I want to look at Letang's numbers and laugh/cry.
