I am curious if people think shootout skills are undervalued or overvalued.
If players ever start getting signed to more than they are worth just because of what they do in the shootout, then I would say it is overvalued. Haven't seen it happen yet. A guy like Christensen should never be kept over someone like Prust (just for arguments sake) because of the shootout, but if he gets signed over a similar player and the deciding factor is what he brings in a shootout, I would say that is fine.
