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.


What about 3-2-1-0

That works too, as long as they reduce the impact of shootouts & stop giving points out for losses.

I never understood rewarding a team for losing...it would probably never happen, but a team could lose all 82 games in OT or shootout, have 82 points and squeak into the playoffs as a 8th seed...a winless team in the playoffs...nice. Just get rid of the shootout and the 1 loser point.

 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.

Yes, because those 13 points that Tatar and Nyquist combined for really put the team over the top.Tatar was 26 in rookie ppg. For the forwards. Nyquist was 42. Most of the kids behind them played in under 10 games. Rookie toi/gm among rookie forwards who played 10+ games Tatar was 38 and Nyquist was 23. Neither are that physical and neither helped on special teams. They were pretty solid rookies. That doesn't mean they were good NHL players.

What about 2 for a win and 0 for a loss no matter how you do it?

Oh this young man has had a very trying rookie season, with the litigation, the notoriety, his subsequent deportation to Canada and that country's refusal to accept him, well, I guess that's more than most 21-year-olds can handle... Ogie Ogilthorpe!

2 for a win, 0 for a loss, 1 for a tie...hey, there a concept! Lets get back to tradition, stop rewarding a team for getting beat...the NHL has to be the only sport that has two sets of regulations for regular season and playoffs.

I say just drop OT all together and bring back 1 pt for ties. 82 fricking games is enough.

Hoping Wings don't go to one shootout all year. Despise them.

 

But, if you must:

Dats and Crosby are fun to watch, but the rest are just kinda blah.

Good rule of thumb is always take an octopus everywhere. Better to have one and not need it than find yourself thinking, "Damn, I wish I had that octopus".

I think the obvious option is Pasha, Zette, and Bertuzzi...
Zetteberg's SO% isn't very good. Datsyuk's is tops in the league which is obvious, and Bertuzzi is actually quite good percentage wise.

Nyquist and Tatar both have phenomenal hands though. 

Or we can always try to trade back for our old shootout savant...Juri Hudler *laughs at own joke.

Go with Kronner.  He won that one once in like the 83rd round or whatever it was.

 

Dats and Bert for sure.  I'll have to see Alfie and Weiss to judge them, but Z isn't fabulous in shootouts, and I can't recall how Mule is.  Is he used that rarely, or am I just losing my memory- or maybe repressing bad memories?

 

I'd like to see how Nyquist does, assuming they re-sign him.

 

3-2-1-0 for points.  3=win.  2=shootout win.  1=shootout loss.  0=loss.

My only addition is that to get the loser point, the losers have to go through the bitchslap line before they can go through the handshake line.
