Not until we get a new coach who implements a new system. It goes against the philosophy entirely. Shootouts will make defensive play in OT more prevalent, not less. Why take a risk to generate a scoring chance when you know that if you can hold on for 5 minutes you're guaranteed to have 5 scoring chances? Makes no sense. You gotta think conservative. Shootouts might make teams with bad goaltenders play more aggressive in OT, but who has a bad goaltender these days?
