The shootout is dumb. I hate it. But it's part of the game now, and excelling at it can make a difference in the standings. To treat it like a gimmick and not take it seriously would put your team at a disadvantage. There are other ways to voice displeasure at it, but to do that at the expense of points is foolish.
Its not ********.

You can try and score and still do stupid **** in the attempt. That move last night was so ****ed up but it almost worked if it wasn't for an awesome save, had it gone in it would of been embarrassing as all hell.

Kaspars Daugavins WAS trying to score last night. He WAS taking it seriously. People are trying the "forsberg" and it works, but its one that when it fails it looks horrible. Who was closer to scoring last night. Seguin or Daugavins?

Daugavins attempt was silly looking, and people should be rolling their eyes at it. But if thats the direction the NHL wants to take they should be prepared for hockey games imitating the all star game.




As far as the "tie" argument, change the overtime rules to accommodate the game ending during a team vs team atmosphere.
