Default Re: Fighting in Hockey: In or Out

Mr. Dyck! Amen!!!

I hate the shootout! As a goalie especially, its hard for me to watch two teams play 60 minutes of great hockey plus 4 on 4 OT, and then have it all come down to something as non-team oriented as a shootout. I especially hate those 5 and 6 round shootouts. It just doesn't feel like a legitimate win to me.

I think I saw Boston and Columbus play earlier this year and end in a 1-0 shootout win after neither goalie allowed a single goal all night exept for one in the shootout. That was incredible from a goaltending stadpoint considering that they had each faced between 40-50 shots by the end of the night.
