Scoring chances is more important than shots.

I didn't watch many games but their plan is probably to let other teams shoot from everywhere except from the "paying zone"... They have 2 of the best AHL goalies to make the saves (Bingo's SV% is well over 0.930) and big D-men to clear the rebounds
Shots and scoring chances correlate very strongly in the the long run.

Don't think it's Richardson's plan to be 30th in shots against. Regardless how confident the team is in the goaltending.

Bingo was a little better than evens in shots for and against through the first 15 games, but have been pretty consistently outshot since. Here's their shot differential to date, vs. the Syracuse team they're chasing:

The team has improved in a lot of facets vs last year, but shots against is one area they're worse.
