Corsi per goal, the cousin of shooting percentage

I've never seen this before, so I wanted to share this. I was thinking about shooting percentage, and realized that it completely ignores when a player takes a shot and it misses the net or it gets blocked.

Thus, I propose that Corsi per goal (at both the team and individual level) is far more usefull, since it penalizes teams and/or players that miss the net or get their shots blocked at a high rate.

I'm planning on using this stat and seeing if it reveals anything interesting.
