What are your thoughts on the shootout?

Post by Nick » Sat Dec 22, 2018 11:49 am

Personally I despise them. I'm curious as to what every one else thinks

Here's my thoughts [url]http://beerleaguetalk.com/blog/hey-nhl- ... tupid//url]

I wouldn't mind having a longer 3v3 before going to a shootout. But as long as shootouts stay out of playoffs I don't mind seeing games end in them during the regular season.

No complaints. They don't actually happen all that often anyways (by a quick count, for example, only 13 games across the league ended in a shootout in December), so they're kind of exciting. In reality, the 3 on 3 is getting less exciting all the time as teams realize that possession is 99% of the game in OT, so they enter the zone, then back out then enter again then back out again, and just try to hold the puck and hope for a breakdown.

Until NHL goes to 3pts for regulation win, regular season is kind of a joke anyways.

I personally like the shoot out for regular season. I wouldn't want it in play offs though.

I do have to add that I absolutely hate the 3v3 overtime. I'd much rather go back to 4v4.
