Bulis 1 goal on 39 shots!! 2.56% shooting percentage. He's working hard, but can't seem to put the puck in.
Zednik 2 goals on 50 shots! 4.00% shooting percentage. It's like he's forgotten how to score.
Combine Bulis and Zednik with Sundstrom, Koivu, Begin, Ryder, Hossa, Juneau & Audette and that group of forwards have scored 10 goals on 228 shots!!!! That is a 4.387% shooting percentage.
All the forwards combined have scored 23 goals on 312 shots. That around a 7% shooting percentage. That means these guys need 30 shots a game average to score 2 goals!!!!
The Hab's weakess department is the quality of their shooting. Bulis shoot soft pea shoots that are so ridiculous. In fact, we only have Souray who have an hard slap shot this year, and I forgot Perreault who is our only forward with a decent fast and precise wrist shot. Let's bring Steve Shut and Mike Bossy for shooting lessons. Our forwards are too small to stay 5 feets from the net without being push away, and their quality of shooting is not hard enough to score from more than 30 feets. So I'm not surprise Habs doesn't score.
