There's always a probability that the puck goes in the net on any shots, some are higher than the other. This is pretty simple to understand.
I challenge you to prove that more goals aren't scored on redirected shots from farther out (and/or ensuing rebounds/bounces) than from actual "prime" slot areas. Meaning, whatever your idea of "dangerous area" might mean, shots don't discriminate where they come from - the function relies on what's in between the puck and the goalie even more so than the location or relative reaction time required (a goalie will stop any shot they can see, whether it's from the hash marks or centre ice). Forcing teams to shoot from the outside doesn't protect your goalie as much as it "should" if you get in the way and make him track it through your legs, for example, or get your stick in the way and make the puck fly funny, for another.
