You have to finish your chances, not just create chances

The injuries are preventing them from doing that consistently

Too bad Backes shoots to the wrong side of an open goal

creating chances is the name of the game, just like getting on base in baseball

what happens after that is completely irrelevant and judging beyond creating makes you a casual fan that has no sports knowledge whatsoever

so yeah, leave the thread

If that were true, nobodies would be as good as great players

Finishing requires elite skill, and a lot of the guys they're playing right now don't have even average skill

Tell that to guys who put snapshots over goalies' shoulders with ease or handle the puck so well that they essentially create empty net opportunities

Shot creation is part of the equation, but far from the only thing that matters

Not every goal is skill based, no

Didn't you make a post 20 minutes ago saying Pastrnak would've easily finished a chance that Backes missed? Lol
