It's impossible to check out a video which doesn't exist.

My accuracy is hit & miss.

Sometimes I can't hit the broad side of an aircraft carrier.

Other times I can snipe top cheese from the goal line.

this. haha

im not really a shooter though.
im 6'5'' and i'd consider myself more of a power forward. i have good hands, but most of my goals come from rebounds and deflections.


i can't go anywhere but top shelf when i shoot haha, it doesn't work for me otherwise.

Sorry,couldn,t figure out how to attach anything,I play hockey - not computer.Check Youtube for a Sidney Crosby video where he shoots at a pyrimid of pucks and picks off one rolling along the boards.Myself I could probably hit a Gatorade bottle 5 out of ten times with a wrist shot from 20 feet.

I amaze myself on the regular with how well I can snipe the puck sometimes. The problem is, if I have more than a split second to think about what I want to do, it's going into the logo or over the glass. Awesome video by the way... it reminded me of this picture!

Horrible accuracy, it's really quite pathetic. For some reason I'm more accurate from further away though...

Against an empty net I can pick corners. Against a goalie, I tend to shoot it just wide a lot of the time.

At the all star skills comp, in the "accuracy shooting" competition you have some of the best shooting NHLers stand 25 feet out, shoot at targets much bigger than a Gatorade bottle, and still hit on only about half of their shots (on average). I highly, highly doubt you are that accurate from 20 feet. Being able to hit a small target from 20 feet 5 times out of 10 on one specific occasion is a lot different than being able to average that kind of accuracy.

I might have the slowest wind-up + weakest shot, but I can always pick the opening on the goalie, whether it's top corner, five hole, etc.
