It's at the point when yesterday in the dying second of OT I turned to my wife (baking cupcakes, not really watching with me...) and said 'I'd prefer they lost now instead of watching a shoot out'. Same end result, less cringe.

Put a shoot out in the playoffs and perhaps more teams will take it seriously and practice it. Unfortunately it does nothing for the game overall.

A shootout in the playoffs deciding anything would be the absolute worst.. Soccer is already a dumb sport for doing this to decide CHAMPIONSHIP GAMES. Idiotic way to hand out a trophy for a team sport and if it ever was introduced into hockey playoffs there should be a coup on the NHL offices.

I am Leaf fan and to answer your first question, I'd like for them to play the Habs in May after the regular season is over.

Second question, its never gonna happen. I understand why you can think it would owner's know fans like to watch the shootout and they figure it'll keep them happy, but continuous OT will always be the post-season way (see I didn't say that word)
