On any shootout attempt I have ever seen Gaborik, he tries to go five hole every time. I think that's why he isn't so great on it, it's unbelievable. I don't hate the guy or anything, and at the end of the day, even though the shootout is a gimmick, it counts for points. If it has bearing on playoff hopes, it's important, gimmick or not. I'm tired of seeing this guy in the top three shooters, because regardless of talent, I know exactly where he is shooting every time.

Now, I have only noticed this trend dating back to last season, I do not know if anyone has pointed this out already, but I thought it was worth bringing up.
My guess, he shoots and scores every time on Birons 5-hole (who doesn't), in practice. So he thinks it will also work in a game shoot out situation.
