Alright that's a good example I guess. Most D men though are just different kinds of shooters. Letang does have certain element that makes him good in the shootout. Let's face it though no one is shooting from the circle in the shootout like most D men would! It's probably happened though, so anything is more than possible.

One of the annoying things about Rolston in the shootout was he would always fire a slapshot back in the early days of the shootout when he was with Minnesota. He wasn't even a D man, but he sometimes thought he was on the point on a PP during a shootout! I don't remember him scoring much on it though. It gives the goalie time to prepare to stop it from that far out!
