Scoring is done instinctively. The shot itself, if it’s thought about, is not the same as if it’s done instinctively. You can’t teach when to shoot, but you can teach how to get into position to score. They always talked about my quick release. That was more a matter of survival than anything else. But one of the things I hated to do was waste a shot. I’m probably the guy who wasted fewer shots than anyone who ever played the game. Aiming for me was a waste of time. For me, the object was to hit the net.

Mike Bossy, 80s sniper for the Isles, on his thoughts on shooting and scoring in 1992. As recounted in the Globe and Mail article "Shades of 1992: Flailing Offence Drags Down Ottawa" by Roy MacGregor
