Getting the shots through

Elliot has really impressed me with many aspects of his game. The aspect that has me overly impressed is with his ability to get a shot through and on net. I think this is such an underrated skill. So I wanted to see how often his shot get through compare to others. Lets take a look.

The numbers will be broke down as Shots on Goal/ Blocked shots/ Missed shots/ total shots attempted/ Percent

Elliot- 23/ 7/ 4/ 34/ 67.6%

Johnson- 57/ 42/ 21/ 120/ 47.5%

Quincy- 75/ 45/ 30/ 150/ 50.0%

O'Brien- 47/ 31/ 13/ 91/ 51.6

Hejda- 38/ 55/ 23/ 116/ 32.8

O' Byrne- 21/ 54/ 11/ 86/ 24.4

Hunwick-2/ 2/ 2/ 6/ .333

Wow it really is not close. So what about some of the former Avs and league leaders from the Blue line.

Shattenkirk- 49/ 37/ 22/ 108/ 45.4

Liles- 63/ 58/ 21/ 142/ 44.4

Lindstrum- 74/ 28/ 34/ 136/ 54.4

Letang- 64/ 35/ 19/ 118/ 54.2

Garrison- 79/ 54/ 30/ 163/ 48.5

Chara- 85/ 32/ 30/ 147/ 57.8

Weber- 97/ 46/ 35/ 178/ 54.5

Byfuglien- 115/ 23/ 47/ 185/ 62.1

Yandle-83/ 36/ 50/ 169/ 49.1

Keith- 71/ 48/ 29/ 148/ 47.9

If Elliot can keep this pace up he is really going to have a great rookie campaign. I think he will and this is why I think he is going to be a great player in this league. Just so you know, he has a higher percent than Duchene and Radar (56.9% and 64% respectively)
