Holy spit...safe to say the Booth/Canucks relationship in Vancouver has hit a bit of a bump.

Sometimes neither team deserves to lose... some times neither team deserves to win.

It was fine for decades but they decided morons needed to be entertained. As if unsuccessful shootout attempts are entertaining. I mean really what is fun about seeing goalies make routine saves or shooters having half assed efforts? There's a reason why many star players hate it.

So you'd rather see some gimmick decide a game to justify the $ you put down for the game and make it look like someone won and someone lost when in reality, it was a tie? Okay then...

Ties suck and shootouts suck. Gotta find another way.

Yeah, he's crazy, but I like him. He's at least honest and straightforward, unlike a certain coach who used to say little more than "We didn't start the game on time" and "Hard to play against".

Forgot it was Kevin Porter who took Booth out a couple seasons ago. So glad he's gone. Good guy, terrible player.

Not really...I'd rather see the game continued 5v5 with no intermissions until someone scores. Doubt that will happen but what I really DON'T want to see are two teams playing for a tie because it is better to get 1 point than 0. I've seen way too much of that.

They already screwed with it and I really doubt they go back to ties. If my choices are shootout or 3 on 3 OT, I know which one I'm picking. Deciding games with a skills competition is stupid.

Soccer is the only other sport that has ties and a shootout gimmick. People around the world still love it but that **** doesn't fly in North America.

I like him but wouldn't want him for my team.

Yeah, I don't see them going back to ties but they should.

That **** doesn't fly in NA? It was fine for Canadians, only reason it's here is to get more fans in Murica. 3 on 3, 2 on 2, shootouts... it's all crap. Ties is the only thing that makes sense.

This isles/pens game is unreal... don't remember the last time I've seen soo many missed chances on wide open nets.

Even if you have 3 on 3, it's for a limited time and then you have to have a SO anyway. Games can't last longer than 2.5 hours for television reasons so all a little bit of 3 on 3 will do is reduce the number of games that's decided by shootout.

That's true but I'll take it. The less games that go to a SO, the better.

The fun factor of 3 on 3 might go away after a while but I think it could be good. Duchene and MacKinnon with all that room on the ice......

That's all well and good to want, but you know as well as anyone that's not realistic.

Bottom line, there's a lot of parity in the league, goaltending is better than ever, and all coaches use systems. You're going to see some ties. The wide-open days of the 80s are a distant memory for better or worse. Thankfully I think the league has at least found a better balance when it comes to clutch-and-grab. We're at least not seeing the kind of hockey we saw in the Dead Puck Era. I suppose we should be grateful that we had one of the few truly dynamic teams during that time.
