Phaneuf has a cannon of a shot but he needs to improve his accuracy i mean 37 goals on 472 shots is pretty awful. Weber needs to take more shots he doesn't even average 2 shots a game. If he started to shoot more his offensive stats may increase.
uh, 37 goals on 472 shots is not awful. He also had 62 assists, and defensemen take alot of shots just to get a rebound out there or bounce them off the boards and create garbage for the guys parked hin front or for them to tip them etc.
Your post does not take into account the semantics of actualy playing. Its just an assumption based on stats. Trust me. Coaches teach you not only to shoot for the top corner, but how to create garbage for the guys to pick up.
