You have more room for error if your accuracy is off because if you shoot too high you're still hitting the net and if you shoot too low you're probably going to get a rebound. Also, I find that most lower level beer-league goalies get handcuffed easily if you shoot UNDER their arm as opposed to over their shoulder.
Yeah that's another thing, a lot of the goalies in this league are short, don't drop into proper butterfly, and are very active with their gloves and blockers. It's really strange because almost every goalie I've played against drops to butterfly right away.

I'll be swapping the blade tonight...
