Fine. I will be more specific as to where I think Souray or any player should shoot from. I was simply eluding to the fact that it didn't have to be from the point. Besides, it's not only the velocity of his shot that could be useful, but his accuracy has been dead-on which could prove valuable in shootouts. I still fail to see all the doom and gloom with Souray's shot being useful in the shootout.
My original argument was simply to say that, if you're going with a defenseman in a shooutout I would have chosen others before Streit. And I would have chosen Markov before any habs blueliner.
Souray's ability to score using a slapshot from the top of the circle, from the point or from wherever is unlikely to come in handy in a shootout. Souray can score these goals because there are other players on the ice that affect the play. On breakaways and one-on-one situations he's proven just as much as Streit.
Agreed, unproven, yes. With all that being equal, why not go with what we do know about them. Souray scores and produces offensively. Streit does not. And that's not to downplay a solid game by him either.
