    I think the Shootout has it’s place but not during the regular season. It should be kept to must win games like during the play-offs, just like football does with the world cup.

    I’m fine with the shootout. I think it makes more sense during the regular season than it does during high-stakes games like in the playoffs.

    “why must a game… be decided by the flick of a wrist of an individual.”
    Actually, the outcome of a shootout is decided by 6 individuals or more (2 goalies and 4 shooters minimum).

    Kevin,

    I realize the shootout is comprised of 6 individuals, but my point is, on any one shot, the game comes down to two single individuals, one from each team.
