I understand what you're saying, but if a game goes into a shootout, think of how long it takes. You have to decide on shooters. The ice has to be Zamboni-ed. Guys have to stand around and mess with their sticks, and skate around in circles while the goalie warms up. I swear, getting a shootout started takes so long I want to fall asleep. At least with a 20:00 overtime period, you get the show on the road and it probably wouldn't take as long as most shootouts.
