Basically, if Datsyuk doesn't score, we lose the shootout... and if he does, we got about a 50/50 chance.

agreed

Exactly my thoughts. They play to tie in OT, then just put out Malkin and Crosby for the shootout.

I would have liked to have seen Miller. Williams was a disappointment today, he's usually pretty decent in the shootout. Didn't even try to deke.

I also think that it should be a full 20 minute OT period. No sudden death, just another period and the score after that is the final no matter what.

I think this is a good idea, except it should just be one 10 minute OT period, not 20. They can't be expected to play 1.333 games every 4 games during a season... kinda crazy, no?

10 minute 4-on-4 would be pretty exciting.

Lilja will lead the team in SO goals when he returns!

For the record, I think shootouts to break ties are lame and the league should get rid of them. If a weak team makes it to the playoffs with this strategy and they can't score with a defense in front of them, they will choke in multiple OT periods, if they make it that far. It's for the best. If a team misses the playoffs because they can't win in regulation or OT, it's hard to feel sorry for them, even if weaker teams are making it via shootout.

Yea I didn't think about that. I would enjoy a 4 v. 4 for 10 mintues.
