they are a 1v1 where the object is to score/prevent score and thus, help determine who will win the game.

i watched that live last night and was like "whoa, what was that?" but it didn't bother me. looks like he actually flubbed the shot and got lucky. it was exciting, tho. the problem is, as bmac put it, what if he loses the puck doing some bull**** like that and loses the game for his team? no, it ain't what shootouts are about, though that type of stuff might make the league reconsider getting rid of the shootout.
Alright, let me correct myself. The shootout allows players to try flamboyant moves and what not. I personally like the creativity in the shootout.
