Yes and no.

If he didn't score high quality goals would he score as many?

That's what separates him from average goal scores.

But I do agree the phrase is silly, not so much when used to describe a player on HF as when it's used by announcers who have nothing original to say. At least when you read it in a description you know what the person is trying to say, instead of when someone deflects one off their skate and the announcer says it.
