Not even close. Goals are such a small sample size and shooting percentage can be so random that goals is a terrible proxy to measure a player.

Corey Perry
Last 3 years, shot totals: 283, 270, 290
Last 3 years, goal totals: 32, 27, 50
Last 3 years, shooting percentage: 11.3%, 10.0%, 17.2%

Look at any player's goal total when they had a career high and it's almost assuredly their best year according to shooting percentage.
