NCHC and Big 10 shootouts

Both leagues are going to shootouts. Just another reason for me to hate the change of these 2 new leagues. They do not belong in college hockey in my opinion. Yes I am old school but to get a point for winning a showdown between player and goalie is absurd. I would love to see a 4 on 4 8 minute ot and no score after that leave it as a tie. Let the game decide it not a gimmicky shootout.

**** ties. There are better ways to determine a winner than a shootout but shootouts > ties.

We will agree to disagree then. I have never left a Sioux game where it was tied and someone said I sure wish we had a shootout. Never. And I have been to hundreds of games.

Don't necessarily like the move, but don't hate it, either

I hate the shootout, disappointed that two more conferences will go this route.

I hate ties. I left The Ralph way too many times with that pergatory "we tied" feeling. I enjoy watching shootouts. I hope it wont change the effort in OT in the negative. I'm on the fence right now, but if UND wins most of their shootouts i'll be pro shootout. But the second we miss the playoffs or home ice advantage because of a shootout, I (and a few others) may change their tune on shootouts.

I don't expect any effort changes, of course this is coming from a Badgers' fan point of view. It seems like any time they went to overtime against a decent team they would always play not to lose. Control the puck for as long as you can, if you're in your defensive zone just clear the puck. It was really awful to watch. The only time they would go for a win is if it was against a team that they could just dominate possession and basically get all the chances against.

I would like the shootout more if they went 3 on 3 or 4 on 4 for 10 minutes. 5 minutes just isn't long enough to determine anything.

If they are using shoot-outs like the women's WCHA does, the shootout win point is only used in league standings. The game is listed as a tie for all other purposes. 3 points awarded for a win, 2 if you win the shootout, 1 if you lose the shootout.

The CCHA was using it for the past few seasons and I personally liked shootouts, it added a different dynamic and got the students really involved. I think the WCHA is doing Shootouts this season as most of the schools in the conference are coming from the CCHA.

I was at an NCAA game a couple of years ago (Maine vs Boston) which reminded me why shootouts make the game better. The game was tied going into for third period. With about 5 minutes left in the game both teams really stopped taking chances. Same with overtime no team wanted to risk losing that point. Shootouts make a difference.

(just in the regular season of course)
