Exactly this, of course practicing off ice still has many great advantages. It's more of a technique and muscle memory thing. The more you practice the movement of shooting the more your body just automatically gets used to performing the movements involved without you having to think about it.
Of course doing it while moving and on ice where there's less friction, will also take practice. However, since most of us don't have unlimited ice time, then off ice training definitely gets the job done.
