This is a really simple example, but look at the list of the highest shooting percentages in NHL history:

The list is littered with players who played on the same line as all-time great playmakers. Mario Lemieux's famous leaches (Rob Brown and Warren Young) are right near the top. Charlie Simmer was Marcel Dionne's triggerman.

Sergei Makarov, who was trained in the Soviet system which favored precision passing and shot quality over quantity, is also prominent on the list.
