It's not my cup of tea but it's not the end of the world either. I hate the OT pt, but it doesn't take anything away from me when I watch a game. I still get 60 minutes of hockey. The only effect it will have is on the standings, where some teams will have advantages over others at first. But, as Vlad said, soon GMs and coaches will adjust and implement the shootout into their game plan.
If it works, it works. If it doesn't, they'll probably go back. It's not particularly what I want, but I'll give it a shot.
