I'm not sure I can find his total attempts easily but he's only managed to put 48 on net. I think you'll agree with me when you see a much, much larger NHL sample-size.
By no means am I expecting a Stamkos bomb, I've just seen his shot and goaltenders seem to have no trouble with it. It's pretty accurate, he just needs to work on his shot velocity so he can surprise some goalies. Look at Panik or Johnson or Gudas, those guys have amazing shots. Quick and heavy. Killorn needs to establish that so that he can become an even bigger threat.
