I respect your opinion and was not a fan of the idea when it was first introduced. I still have a hard time saying a team "lost" a game after losing in the shootout. But I also remember how disappointing it is when a game ends in a tie. In a perfect world they would play overtime until one team wins, but as we all know it's not possible. The shootout is sort of a gimmick but it's entertaining for a lot fans, and I bet the players like it as well. It's been around for a while now so teams have had enough time to practice shootout attempts and make it a part of their game.
