Laviolette doesn't consider the shootout as part of the game. He sees it more of a crapshoot. To some degree, he's right.

These guys practice moves on their own anyways. Everyone always says that every practice ends with breakaway practice.

It is a crapshoot, but that doesn't make it a part of the game. As far as I am concerned, if it is prominent in the game, its part of the game.

I hate the shootout as much as the next guy, but with that mentality, it's no wonder the Flyers have the worst record in the shootout.

Regardless of what the coaches views of the shootout are, its unacceptable to not delegate time to practice the shootout, when it's obvious that there is a problem

Agreed, it's unacceptable not to prepare. It's worth 50% of the value of the entire game!

65 minutes = 50%
2 or 3 breakaways = 50%

We need some shootout specialists, they would give more bank for the buck.

If we win 4 of the SOs we lost out of 8, instead of one, we'd be right with the Rangers.

These players have all been playing hockey since they were born and if anything has not changed about the game is that a penalty shot (or shootout attempt) is between the player and the goalie and no one else. These forwards have been taking breakaways in practices their whole lives and spending a half hour each day DURING practice time is not going to benefit the team. The team needs to work on improving their play in other areas so they dont end up going to shootouts in the first place. If the players want to have some accountability maybe they should stay after practice and work on shootouts on their own time.

This is why in shootouts, you're starting to see players just start to shoot the puck instead of fiddling around with it.

EXACTLY,, every point is worth the same regardless of how you earned it..

to discount SO extra point cuz its lame is slitting your own wrists.

if the point is on the table you do everything in your power to earn it, not concede it to the other team cuz you dont like the SO

I wonder which came away from the practice the winner

Giroux was in full-on play-off mode last night. He was everywhere, incredible game. Can't believe he came out pointless.

The entire first line was dominant yet surprisingly they were held pointless.
