Similar to what Scheifele has done with his shot this year: hard, quick release at the net.
Last game though; he had a quick release off a wrister, more instinctual shot vs. putting the lean on and holding it for 2 seconds. He needs to start shooting smartly and more often rather than looking for the play all the time. Take a page from Kaner and be a little greedier.
Where the Jet's have found a little more success this year is less attempts at multiple pass plays when there was a good shot to be had. They do it still, but thankfully it does not seem nearly as often.
I think by this point next year we will see an improvement...providing he does not get dealt...I would not be surprised to see 40+ point year from him if he is inserted in a stable line...perhaps more if he is Kane/TheSheif/Burmi line.
Love that idea...
