I'll check it out - thanks!

In the long run, including empty-net goals would increase each team's shooting percentage (duh). If I normalize these to average, then it would disproportionally benefit teams with more empty-net goals (also duh).

That would lead to a slight overvaluing of good teams, which if I'm attempting to capture a measure of opposing offensive quality, isn't necessarily a horrible outcome.
