Pretty interesting, they showed the filled out shootout form on the Florida feed. Hornqvist was originally slated to go 1st but it was scribbled out with Smith written in instead. Hendricks originally 3rd.
To be fair, Hornqvist's game is not well suited for 4v4 play
Yet all I see him do all game long is forecheck like a madman creating turnovers yet he's not suited for it? In years past I'd agree but defensively he's worlds better than in seasons past. He's the heart and soul of this team and to me he's as good as anyone else we've got out there night in and night out. If Wilson gets time and he's a poor skater Hornqvist should be getting time.
We've only made it to OT seven times ... winning one, losing two in the OT period ... 0-4 in the shootout (not the worst shootout record in the league).
Not getting the extra point in the shootout is frustrating. I'm more upset about the 17 games with four or more goals allowed so far this season. Look how few times we get a game to OT compared to how often we allow 4+ and usually lose in regulation when doing it.
