I respect your opinion and was not a fan of the idea when it was first introduced. I still have a hard time saying a team "lost" a game after losing in the shootout. But I also remember how disappointing it is when a game ends in a tie. In a perfect world they would play overtime until one team wins, but as we all know it's not possible. The shootout is sort of a gimmick but it's entertaining for a lot fans, and I bet the players like it as well. It's been around for a while now so teams have had enough time to practice shootout attempts and make it a part of their game.

The shootout is dumb. I hate it. But it's part of the game now, and excelling at it can make a difference in the standings. To treat it like a gimmick and not take it seriously would put your team at a disadvantage. There are other ways to voice displeasure at it, but to do that at the expense of points is foolish.
Its not ********.

You can try and score and still do stupid **** in the attempt. That move last night was so ****ed up but it almost worked if it wasn't for an awesome save, had it gone in it would of been embarrassing as all hell.

Kaspars Daugavins WAS trying to score last night. He WAS taking it seriously. People are trying the "forsberg" and it works, but its one that when it fails it looks horrible. Who was closer to scoring last night. Seguin or Daugavins?

Daugavins attempt was silly looking, and people should be rolling their eyes at it. But if thats the direction the NHL wants to take they should be prepared for hockey games imitating the all star game.




As far as the "tie" argument, change the overtime rules to accommodate the game ending during a team vs team atmosphere.

A lot of people are pissed here for the ATTEMPT.. can you imagine how bad this place would be if he had scored?
I thought it was great. This is the entertainment industry. I was entertained. It also got some play on TV that normally wouldn't give the NHL any exposure.

Not sure it this was aimed at me since you quoted me, but I never said ties are horrible. I just said that a shootout is more entertaining than a tie.

I won't. I detest shootouts.

Let them play OT either 5x5 or 4x4 until someone scores.

You cannot do that in hockey. You cannot have teams play 2 or 3 or 4 overtime periods and then have them play again in less than 24 hours. It would be too physically demanding.

I had a disclaimer in there initially where I said I wasn't calling what he did a ******** attempt. But thought I didn't need it, considering I said in the beginning of my post that my comment was in regards to the idea that players should treat the shootout as the gimmick it is.

My mistake.

Damn, you guys just keep winning. Habs are having best season in years, and still Bruins are doing better (taking the games in hand into account). Big, tough and plenty of finesse to boot. Nice effing team. Unfortunately.

Hate the Bruins! Loving the rivalry!

I still think Turris trying to bully Hamilton until Seidenberg got there was funny

You just made your first post ever on the Bruins board. Maybe you are really a Bruins fan?

My idea is 4v4 for 10-15min and if no one scores.. the game ends in a tie where no one gets a point.

1.) I think a goal would occur in this amount of time. in 4v4 for 5minutes, there are definitely more chances. So 4v4 for up to 15 minutes would almost surely ensure a goal.

2.) without a loser point where both teams ultimately deemed as losers.. both teams will actually try and score before it gets to OT.. no one wants to play longer than they have to. conserving energy for the next game is key.

3.) This would also ensure that the OT itself should it get there, is riddled with opportunity. No going through the motions knowing that you're getting a point either way.. that the game ends in a shoot out if it doesn't get done in OT. You have to try your best to score within 10-15 minutes or it's treated like a loss.

It would bring ties back but I have no problem with them. I actually think this would make hockey even more exciting quite frankly.

I'm even in favor of 3pt games.. 3pt for regulation win. 2pts for OT win. 0 pts for losers.

Semi OT but how was Dog man's move last night legal? I thought once you either lose control or make a backwards move, it's considered a dead play and when he spins around, that's akin to moving backwards so it should be blown dead, not to mention, he could squat while having his back towards goal, therefore interfering with Rask's ability to attempt the save (I know he made the save but just mean food for thought in making a fair ruling). Just hope to get rule clarification if anyone here knows. I thought if I started a new thread about it it'd be merged here anyway so... thanks in advance for the replies.
