If your idea of advanced contributions is to say "in the long run there is really no skill to sh%", I can only assume you're reading the wrong people or you are misunderstanding what you read. You obviously haven't looked at the numbers yourself.
Tampa Bay had an on ice sh% of 12.8...only good for 11th in the NHL. The top ten teams are :

1.) Nashville
2.) Edmonton
3.) New York Islanders
4.) Toronto
5.) Atlanta
6.) Philly
7.) Boston
8.) Calgary
9.) Ottawa
10.) Florida

Your theory of superhuman skill is thrown out the window.
