High scorers often miss a lot, but they also shoot a lot, which is a result of excellent skating and the fine art of creating space, which is very underrated.
I hated every single high and wide, but I understood it. When the team truly needed a goal and he'd miss the top corner-- it was very annoying, which everyone zero'd in on.
