It doesn't necessarily show a weakness of the method on a large scale.
It doesn't matter if certain shots are harder or easier than others if all goalies face a similar ratio of 'hard' and 'easy' shots.
The only way to show a weakness would be to show that there's a way for a team to sustain higher levels of 'easy' shots (and thus lower levels of 'hard' shots)
