I agree, 1000%. The practicality of that, though, is beyond achievable on any meaningful basis. What if it's from the same spot, but it's Steven Stamkos shooting vs. John Scott shooting? What if it's Chara vs. Malik? What if Ovechkin is shooting from in the slot vs. from his own end on a rolling puck? A player who's previous high in goals was 6 but has 45 on the year? There are too many "subjective" factors to even begin to try setting up a legitimate "quality of shot" stat, so it's understandable that there isn't one.
