I can agree with that. I am not saying there should be no Shootouts at all. Shootouts in the Preliminary games of the WC make sense. However, it sucks that when a medal is on the line- Gold, Silver and Bronze, the game is determined by an individual Skills Competition in an Ultimate Team Sport such as Hockey. It is what it is. Maybe they can make the OT 20 Minutes in the Bronze Medal Game as well. That OT was great to watch, and i am just a guy who is not a fan of a Gimmick like a Shootout determining a Medal. Others disagree, and i respect their opinion. Congrats to the USA. My Darkhouse Pick for GOLD in Sochi.
