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)
Since the save percentage for clean shots is so stable, wouldn't the fact that we have such differing save percentages for goalies over a season suggest that all goalies doesn't face the same ratio of clean shots?
