They spend 30 minutes working on something like shootouts, that's 30 minutes less to practice the power play, PK, etc. Shootout moves for the forwards are just things that do in their spare time, it's up to them to use something effective. For the goalies, you stop the puck, same as any breakaway. The problem is that Bryz's fundamental approach to breakaways is completely wrong; he doesn't know when to go down, when to come out a bit to challenge and cut down the angle, etc. The failures in shootout have been on both ends, but practicing it specifically is still a waste.
