no you don't you use established and trusted players, MiG will get this chance
Actually, Cullen and Parise both have better %'s than Koivu. Koivu has more shootout goals than Cullen because of more attempts, but Cullen has the second best %, being just barely behind Parise, Koivu being a few behind both.
