I'm not big on D men in shootouts. Larsson would have to blast that thing, and probably from the circle, or at an angle. It's no big deal cause I can't think of many D men having good shootout moves. I remember Nashville using Zidlicky, and Toronto using Kaberle back in the early years of the shootout. Niedermayer would have been a good shootout guy cause we've seen him deke, and some nice moves on breakaways over his career.
Well, I know it's a rule in the NHL so I'm assuming it carries over. Larsson's not the creative type though, but I don't think we can really say anyone else would've been a more viable choice? The rest of the guys are all similar, Wiseman, Zalewski, DeSimone, they aren't really shootout type. Whitney, Butler, JJ, and Anderson are gimmes but the rest aren't really.
