Corsi and Fenwick correlate very well with scoring chances. You can read this article by Eric T

or this article by Vic Ferrari


Both articles show that shot differential metrics (i.e. Corsi and Fenwick) prove to correlate very well with Scoring chances. Shot quality tends to wash out over a season's worth of games. At a team level it is nonexistent, . At the individual level, there is some persistance in shot quality over a season's worth of games, but not that much.
