We'll just have to agree to disagree.

Luke Schenn pass to the opposition player for a uncontested shot being equal to a shot from the perimeter? I don't see it that way.
It's not about that, really.

If a defense is good enough to allow fewer quality shots, they're also good enough to allow fewer shots total.

If a defense is bad enough to allow many quality shots, they're bad enough to allow many total shots as well.

It doesn't make a lot of sense to think there's teams that are especially good at preventing quality shots, but still give up many total shots, or that there are teams that can't prevent quality shots, but somehow keep total shots low.
