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)

Come join us on the By The Numbers forum. Take a look at our introduction post if you're new. If you have any questions, feel free to PM me.
