And the shootout is going no where... its very popular and I think we dislike it because we suck at it.

shootout is an anti climatic way to end a game, wish NHL would do 3 mins of 3/3 before it

I'll admit it's exciting, but it's not how a hockey game should end. It's like ending a baseball game with batting practice, or a football game with a hundred yard dash.

I dont like any shootout... nothing to do with us being good or bad at it... i just find 4 v4 or 3 v3 more exciting then a shootout.

Nope. Not true. He is not a good compliment to there game and was never good on the top line. And even if he might have more skill than we give him credit his hockey IQ is too low to do anything with it. He takes wrist shots from the blue line...

Yea I agree he sucks. But, apparently one goal eliminates all past performances and means he should stay on the top line.

But, whatever. That's two coaches now that think he can play on the first line. Maybe he's just a stud in practice. I dont get it though.

3v3 to me is just as much of a gimmick as a shoot out.

This. 4on4 for 10 minutes or something. Also, get rid of the loser point, it makes no sense.

I guess all goals that are scored in the NHL are hi-lites, such as all the goals tonight, yet you picked out Beleskey's to comment on. What is wrong with you? Do not like people who own Bull dog'S....LMAO.

I still like the proposed 3-2-1 system.

I used to not like the idea of shootouts, but it does make the game more interesting and worthwhile to watch in OT. If games would end in ties, then both teams can stand pat in OT. But because there is a shootout, then the team that sucks at shootouts better come up with better 4-on-4 situations otherwise, but that extra point is to be had because it is forced upon both teams. The NHL added another dimension to its game by forcing teams to practice shootout situations or to add that one third or fourth line with some flair to the roster for such occasions. The other aspect is drama. I think the NHL picks up more fans that see highlights of shootouts because that's easy to understand and more often shown on highlights. All of the shooters are shown in the highlight.

I would lie if I said those highlights didn't capture my attention. And that's what I would like if I wanted the NHL to grow fans. Especially since I belong to a small market team like Anaheim and would like Anaheim to stay put. I bet no team likes the shootouts and would rather win it in OT. I don't have any statistical analysis to back this up, but there's probably a little more intensity to win it in OT.

Even San Jose's coach thinks we were the better team.


“We’ve got to be excited that we put points in the bank and were able to come back,” Sharks coach Todd McLellan told the San Jose Mercury News. “But we have to tell it like it was — they were the better team.”

Youd have trouble finding anyone that isnt a sharks fan that says the sharks were the better team last night.

At the end of the day tho they got 2 points we got 1 and despite being out played they got what they wanted.

I love the sharks, but the ducks were clearly better last night. I was happy to steal 1pt, let alone 2.

Loss of our top 3 puck moving D-men showed. (Boyle, Burns, and Demers). To be fair I don't think any team that lost their top 3 blue-line movers would have played any better.

This is a great Sharks team, but I can see a repeat of '09 if we match up with the Ducks or Blues in the playoffs. Against anyone else we should beat easily.

It won't be a first round matchup, but a Sharks Blackhawks series would be hugely entertaining.
