same thing as shot quality. don't focus on the fact that it includes "only" 12 point blank wrist shots and "only" 14 wraparound attempts and "only" 22 slap shots from the point. it's still a large sample that includes 1000+ shots in total.

In other words, I don't care what someone's Corsi was in particular against a certain player. I want to know about their season-long tendencies.
