Thats not really a good excuse, other players can find ways to still hit the net. If that means he needs to "walk the blue line" a bit to change the angle then he has to do that. Or maybe it means he needs to get the shot off faster before players get their bodies or sticks in the way.

And I disagree SLU Hockey somewhat, his shot is actually quite good, good wrist shot and he does have a hard slap shot(wrist shot being the better of the two). Again it comes back to hitting the net with it though.
