Over 80 games, over several seasons we see what a players norm is.

I would be curious to know what his shooting % was like in the last 2 years in a weaker league.

I looked it up 16 goals on 110 shots is 14.54 (37 games)

The season before is 18 goals on 108 shots which is 16.666 (43 games)

In his rookie year in the WCHA it was 6 goals on 61 shots good for 9.83

Compared to Smith from Detroit at the same school his shooting % is better but it's still a long way to translate that into the NHL.
Have you even seen him play?

Or do you just extrapolate a players worth and predict his future from box scores?

This is a rookie dman who leads the league in points. Tied with Jordan Eberle.

Who gives a flying **** about his shooting %?

A bigger bunch of nonsense is hard to find. People were saying the same garbage about Eberle after last year. His shooting percentage is somewhere around 27% right now.
