The NHL just needs to get rid of the shootout. It's a ridiculous gimmick that has way overstayed. If MLB can play unlimited OT, and so can the NBA and ties in the NFL almost never happen, then why can't the NHL settle their games the right way? Why do we have to be the stupid fringe pro sports league that has a skills competition at the end of games to decide the winner? Come on. We deserve better. Just keep going with OT until someone wins. Fans get more value for their dollar when watching in the arena. Games are settled with a true team win rather than a meaningless 1 v 1 shootout. And most importantly, the NHL stops looking like an amateur hour mickey mouse club who don't know how to properly market a game that should, by reason, be right behind football in terms of popularity.
