MacT also did it last season when he pulled conklin for the SO and put in either markannen or morrison

I think its a terrible thing to do. Its gotta be embarassing and demoralizing for the goalie when they get pulled for the SO. It means the coach doesn't trust that you can get the job done.

As for our shootout situation.... Huet has been unlucky enough to face the sabres twice in the shootout... and the fact of the matter is that the sabres rarely lose these breakaway battles... and it shows in their overall record.

I dont think its a problem. Abby and huet are a combined 4-4... and since the shootout is theoretically a 50/50 chance at winning, a 4-4 record is pretty acceptable.
