Those goals eat at me as a defenseman. I am sure you're seeing it from the goalie's eyes, though, just as I am from the dmans
The details don't matter. As far as I'm concerned, short side vs far side is the same difference from the blue line. I'm more angry if the goalie is off to either side and it went into nearer the middle of the netting than a shot that hits a corner. Short-side tends to look worse because it's closer to the center when it hits the netting due to the angle it comes in on, but it's really no different in the end. From the angles you're facing on blue line shots, you need to be square as possible.
