Am I throwing away points?
Not at all. Here's the thing, it's a balancing act. The more shooting you train the less of the primary and secondary attys you're training. For a winger, the better OFF/TECH/AGR are (within the ratio) the better the player is and thus the more shots he'll take. Once he takes a shot, his shooting attribute in combination with his skill (idea is that better players get better scoring chances) will determine whether the attempt was successful or not.
