Re: his accuracy in general, I think it's fine. He takes a lot of shots from far out, it's harder to be accurate on those. He also tends to go top cheese, I'm sure if he just wanted to get the puck on net with low shots he'd almost never miss the net, but butterfly goalies cover the bottom of the net very well, so he tries to pick the corners. Some guys shoot low hoping for deflections and/or rebounds, other guys shoot high trying to score with the initial shot, Dion definitely belongs to that second group. I think there's merit to both strategies, if you have a weaker shot you should definitely be going for tips/rebounds, but if you have a cannon it's not a bad idea to shoot to score, even from the point. His accuracy is fine, but he's going to miss the net a decent amount anyway simply because he's trying to pick corners from long distance.
