You don't use this stat or any stat alone. You combine them with other stats. IN your Booth example, when you combine his scoring chance area stats with his typical 7-8% shooting percentage you know he's going to need all those chances to get his 20-25 goals. Whereas a Daniel Sedin has a career shooting percentage of 12% isn't going to need the same number of chances AND/OR the chances he gets are of higher quality.
