I am not a fan of the shootout because it's not real hockey. It is like deciding a baseball game with a home run hitting contest or a football game with a field goal "kick off". As I mentioned above, the novelty wore off a long time ago for me. As for the point awarded for the OT loss, I always thought that was a bad idea. A team should never be rewarded for losing, IMO.

Back to the Whalers. Their special teams have been a mixed bag so far. The penalty kill unit has been good, but the power play has been enemic. You would think it would be the opposite, considering their offensive talent and struggles on defense and in net so far. It doesn't make much sense to me.
