Was just wondering who you guys think will be are top shootout guys this year.  With the additions of Nyquist, Tatar, and Weiss I feel we will be a lot stronger in the shootout.

 

If I had to guess I would think are top 3 regular shooters would be Datsyuk, Nyquist, Weiss, followed by Z, Tatar, Alfy 

 

What do you guys think?

Don't forget, as of now we did lose Flip and The Omen. I'd say that we are going to be about the same skill-wise in the shootout, but I hope that I am proven wrong.

Weiss, pav, Z.. followed by Bert, alfy, then the kids.

At least to start the season. If they don't perform we do have plenty of decent shootout options. Hopefully we have some consistent scoring in the shootout

Datsyuk
Bertuzzi
Zetterberg


Z is below average at the shootout. That is why he is never used in the first three.

Has the NHL officially banned he spin-o-rama yet for the shootout?  That might hurt Bert a bit given that it's his go to move.  Still, I think he'll still wind up in the 2 spot behind Pavel if he's healthy.  The next highest career shootout percentage mark on the roster I believe is Alfie so I see the order being Pavs, Bert, Alfie.  Weiss career-wise is actually slightly lower than Hank's.

not officially.. as far as i've heard it had only been discussed. so i say give a shootout spot to bert at least until it is (if its ever banned)!!

Bert is still a good option IF healthy. 

 

Dats, Bert, Alfie I can go with.

65 minutes of slow old non-tough easy to play against Bertuzzi is not worth his shootout prowess.

Bert can't play 65 minutes a night I'll give you that.

Cool. So we're agreed on the No-Bert policy. We saw what happens when we let our youth develop. Why get away from that. Sticking Bert, Sammy, and Tootoo back in now is like asking to have a cancer come back.

He's done.

He still on the team and I don't think we will be able to trade him or sammy

No Trade Clauses on both would make that rather difficult.  Maybe for comedy purposes, they'll use Eaves in the shootout if he's still around.

Hear you there.  If the NHL keeps 'em, they need to adjust the points system: 2 pts for a reg/OT win, 1 for shootout, & 0 for a loss.
