This article is undeniable evidence that hockey is a sport that you just can't apply this type of math to.

It is a fact that certain goaltenders consistently excel in the shootout and the same goes for certain skaters. Period, end of story, that's all folks.

This is the same reason that shooting percentage is a fool's stat.
