Still a dumb way to decide. They really should just go with career stats since that has been by far the best predictor of success in shootouts. Playing well, having a great shot, being a star, etc. — none of those are as good at predicting shootout success as plain career stats. If I had my team's playoff spot resting on one shootout shot and I could pick Steven Stamkos or Frans Nielsen, I would pick Frans Nielsen.
