So if my team takes 10 shots in a game and scored on 2 of them, my on-ice shooting% for that game is 20%, regardless of how many of those shots or goals were scored by me.
Semi-related to the above, LOL @ Jeff Schultz being carried towards the top of that list.
I didnt see anyone in this thread who misunderstood that. The point of my post was to show how guys like Gretzky, Lemieux, and Dionne drive up the shootin percentages of players they play with.
And yeah, Shultz definitely "got lucky" by sharing a lot of ice time with Mike Green and Alex Ovechkin
