Honestly I don't think there is any carry over effect on success via the shootout from one season to the next. Even if we didn't add Nash things would change...but adding him to the top 3 shooters will likely make a difference. He was 4 for 9 last season (44.4%). Plus, if we can muster just a bit more offense this year we'll win more games in regulation, making shootout success less of a factor.
