Outshooting an opponent doesn't actually seem to be that important to wins...
It's the quality of shots that matter. If a team takes 50 shots and they're all from the outside with no one screening, a nhl goalie should be able to stop all 50. That's Corsi's main flaw. A better way to do it would be looking at the scoring chances created vs scoring chances against/60 min. That would give you a relative idea of how valuable a guy was to the team.
