Shooting percentage is telling when deciding if someone is a finisher or not. These are from today's paper which doesn't reflect last night's game yet.

Comrie's stats don't count yet - many players have a high shooting percentage after a handful of games - but he leads the team with 27% before last night's game.

Recchi's shooting percentage is for real and is at 20%. That qualifies as a finisher.

Roenick and Lapointe are at 16%. Lapointe actually goes to 17% when rounded off properly, but he has just 12 shots, so his stats aren't really accurate for a full year.

After that, the drop-off becomes rather scary. Handzus and LeClair are at 12%. Amonte and Brashear at 11%. Kapanen is at 8% while Williams, Gagne and Primeau all fall in at 7%. Its fine to credit Primeau with all the good things he's done this year and to say he has few goals because he's on a checking line but when he shoots he has to do better. Even more so for Gagne and Williams who are not on checking lines but are considered to be part of the 2nd scoring unit. When Brashear is better than Kapanen, Primeau, Gagne and Williams maybe there is a problem.
