Depends on where he's shooting it from. If he has a clear shot on the net from between the circles, I sure as hell don't want him hoping to create a rebound.

If he's shooting from the point or with traffic around the net, then yeah, shoot low and hope for rebounds or deflections.

Anyways, dude's pretty good. To my eyes, he has the most potential of any of the D the Rangers have and when he turns it all on, he is a force out there in a way that none of the other defensemen (even McDonagh or Staal) can be.

However he's not consistent about doing that, and his defense will never be quite as good as McDonagh or Staal's. He could be one of the better, but probably unsung, offensive defensemen in the league if he can bring it consistently and if this team can stop sucking overall on offense
