Too fancy in my opinion. I'd like to see some of these guys just rip a good shot on net. Hackett is no joke, he's a confident goalie.

Eberle has been poor in SO's this year, did he try his backhand tonight? I missed his attempt.

Felt really weird that Schultz looked so much more comfortable and smoother than Hall in the shootout.

And he's big and covers the bottom of the net, gotta go upstairs against the guys that can cover post to post.

Nope forehand. I love his backhand and it works so much more because he actually gets the puck up in the air.

He went forehand backhand forehand this time. Goalie made a toe save when Eberle wasn't able to lift the puck.

I missed Schultz' attempt, but Hall is not a breakaway player that scores a ton when he's in all alone, he's got a lot of work to do in that area. IMO that was actually a decent attempt by him all things considered. Personally I would've preferred if he tried a snap shot instead.

I seem to remember a guy who wore the number 99 where it wasn't exactly his thing either. Of course we had rather high expectations that he'd score EVERY time.

That makes me think, if shootouts were around back in the glory days, would Wayne be in them all? It's not like they didn't have a number of other players they could put out there (#11, #17, #9 etc.)

Not really. Hall is anything but smooth with the puck while Schultz is as smooth as they come.

Thanks guys, he needs to stick to his bread and butter, backhand and perfectly placed shots.

Remember that move Bobby Nilsson used to do on shootouts? Drive it wide at top speed, quick backhand forehand, snap shot far side? That's what Hall needs to do. He's got the shot and the speed to make that work, just a matter of a little conviction coming in on the goalie. Simple, effective move. All our boys over think the shootout.

Schultz's move was same as Eberle's tonight, forehand backhand forehand. The difference being Schultz wasn't in as tight as Eberle was when he shot, and he had time to lift the puck up hitting top shelf.

Yeah exactly, it's just feel weird watching a defenseman being so prolific on the shootout. I had watched a few Schultz's college highlights on breakaway and shootout, the guy is better at it than most forwards. Amazing!

We aren't nearly as good as we think we are this year. Our blueline got a whole lot younger and frankly, so did our forwards.

There are tons of guys in the AHL who're great at the AHL level who have a lot of experience and it seems this year like our farm club suffers from lack of experience just as much as our pro club does.

His hockey sense isn't that bad. It just looks bad when he's on the ice with Eberle, Hopkins and Scultz.
