The OP used Andre Racicot as an example. Obviously this concept should have an historical application. It's very relevant that shooting percentages of teams differ.

Also the fact that team shooting percentages currently lie within a fairly narrow band is specific to today's NHL and is not a fundamental hockey truth. Why limit the metric based on conditions that could change at any time?
