Shootout lineup/analysis for this season:

Always:
-Huberdeau - Nice variation of moves. Has history of execution in junior.
-Mueller - Quick release. Possesses good shot. Also has a good SO% in NHL.
-Kulikov - Went 2/4 last year. Russian.
-Shore - Possesses a quick release. Could be effective in the SO (will change if he goes 0-3 or 0-4).
-Kovalev - Silky hands. Has ability to beat the goalie more often than not in one-on-one situation.

Once and a while:
-Weiss - Has history of missing, but sometimes can get it done. Low backhand in stride.
-Matthias - Decent backhand. (He's no Olesz, but I'd try him sometimes).
-Goc - Decent one-one player. Low five-hole is bread and butter.
-Bergenheim* - Decent release if he ever plays.

Never:
-Versteeg - KD tried him a lot last year and he blew it a lot (when he was having a nice offensive output - tells you something)
-Fleischmann - (see Versteeg) - Just isn't good one-on-one with the goalie
-Kopecky - Not sure if he's the best choice
-Skille - Don't trust him in SO
-Upshall - (See Skille)
