Both exhibit the same amount of accuracy in the sense that they are both inaccurate. There's an area of the net (i.e. the area that the goalie does not have covered) that counts as being the target. Anything wide of that is being inaccurate. Now you can of course argue that hitting the post is coming closer to the target, but it's still missing it. So my point here wasn't as much in comparing Giroux's shots to those of Raffl, but to show Giroux is inaccurate. Maybe I shouldn't have drawn Raffl into this, since it seems to have created some confusion.
In any case, Giroux's shots aren't accurate enough, it seems. But if people here would rather count posts and feel all giddy and good about them, by all means, go ahead.
