Guess I'm the minority here, but I love the shootout. Although I think they should switch it to 5 shooters, I still feel it's better than a 0-0 tie game after OT like it was before the shootout came into existence.. at least SOMEONE scores...
People are all like, blah blah blah, it's a team sport, shouldn't be decided by individuals... well the TEAMS had 65 minutes of playing time, 5 minutes of which was 4 on 4 to win the game (as a TEAM), not counting powerplays. If they couldn't do it by that point, then what's the big deal with having a shootout?
I'm a huge hockey fan, but paying the price for a ticket, driving 3 hours one way to get to a game, gas, etc. there had better be a damn winner.
