jussi jokinen had 10 shootout goals or so last year and used it twice, the other eight times he didnt go to the backhand and stuck with the forehand, thus making the goalies think they know what hes doing, but then going to the backhand. nash hasnt scored in a shootout this year until last night and probably hadnt used that move which leaves no possible way for osgood to see it coming. plus it is a really sweet move that is hard to stop anyway.



Uh...Jokinen used it more than just twice. At least 3 or 4 times. The point the other guy was trying to make was that everyone made a big about that move, so you think goalies would practice it.
It is not your aptitude, but your attitude, that determines your altitude.

Still can not figure why Babs had Bert and Sammy shooting. As we all know, Sammy can see through the crest of the goaler, and therefore attempts to reach the back of the net through him. And Bert wasn't the greatest decision in my eyes being the first game back one would think that his timing may be off (hand in relationship to foot, altering accuracy).

I'm so pissed at Sammy getting the nod ahead of Rex. That was a predictable shootout attempt if I ever saw one. mad.gif

Hahaha i'd have Homer in my top three just to see his goofy 300 deek move


As I recall, last time Holmstrom was in a shootout he kicked ass.

I have no idea why Sammy was out there, he seriously sux. I'd give Homer the nod WAY before Sammy.

Bert should have had the game winner and speaking of which I can fully understand why Babs put Bert and Cleary out there. He wants to get them acclimated ASAP and shootout pressure is a great way to get them to focus.

Cleary scored and Bert almost did (he had the goalie beat he just lifted it a bit high) so I'd say Babs made a good decision.

Norrena wasn't really standing on his head. Samuelsson was is the biggest waste, he looked effortless.

Fixed it for you.
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.

Samulesson almost made me explode after watching him in the shootout. What a wasted attempt. Hudler or Calder would have certainly been good choices. But Samulesson? I don't think I've ever seen him deke much less take a shot that didn't go in the goalies chest.
