The choice isn't "do we want to win in regulation or win in a shoot-out?" Everyone wants a regulation time win. But by the time you get to a shoot-out, the choice is a different one -- do we want the extra point or are we okay with just one point? If that's the choice, I want the extra point...apparently you don't care if we have the extra point or not. At least that is what it seems.
Not sure what the whole 'Feds clone' thing is supposed to mean. Yeah, if we had different guys we would have a different team. That's kind of a no-brainer. It is not like this mythical Feds-clone showed up, wowed everyone and then was tossed to the curb. No such guy showed up for a tryout. We can all fantasize about the guys we want on the team, but that is all it is. And what if the mythical clone got a mythical concussion? Then where would be -- not killing penalties and losing shoot-outs, that's where.
Two can play that game
Yes, Zucc got 5 SO goals (but it took him more shots to do it). Again, not sure what that is supposed to prove. Is it that Zucc is every bit as good at the shoot-out as EC? Maybe he is, but EC has a track record over the last five years that puts him at about 5th in the league amongst active players in terms of SO% and third over all in terms of game winners. If your point is that we only need one shoot out guy, then the smart choice is EC over Zucc every time...
Yes, but Zuc did not consult with our backup goalie, if he would do that the Extra Effort award would surely be in his little hobbit knapsack.
Regarding Fedotenko what I am saying is there will be plenty good players coming crawling to us looking for a contract this summer as well as our prospects like Grachev, Hagelin, etc. to waste roster spot on Christensen.
