FWIW, only foo foo soccer fans like that shoot out crap because well, it's soccer, and it sucks too...
I'd prefer they go 4 on 4 for 5 minutes and 3 on 3 for another 5 and then end in a tie after that. Gives a little something for both the "novice" fans who hate ties and the diehards.

I'm a soccer fan, I don't care for the shootout other than it seems to keep the casual fan coming back, which the NHL needs as a business.

Basketball's the one that sucks.
