Ribeiro: 21/55, 38.2%
Backstrom: 8/25, 32.0%
Ovechkin: 20/65, 30.8%

Might we actually see a Caps shootout lineup without Ovechkin or Backstrom? I'd find that weirdly hilarious.
I don't expect Wolski to get into every game (call me bearish on him until proven otherwise), so I expect Ovi to be in the top 3 for most shootouts. I would think having a righty to break up the pattern of lefties (if Hendricks/Backstrom and Ribeiro are regulars) would be seen as some sort of advantage, too.
