So this has been all the talk around the hockey world right now, besides the draft. I personally love it. I hate that games can be decided by shootouts. At first it was fun seeing these guys show off their moves but now not so much. In my opinion, there's nothing worse than an incredible OT period and then it going to a shootout. The adrenaline in OT can sometimes get close to playoff hockey which i think is awesome. Having a shootout completely kills all the exciting momentum that the game has built up. Getting to see some combos like Toews- Kane- Keith would be absolutely incredible. So far in the AHL level they have seen an increase in scoring which is what everyone is hoping will happen in the NHL as well.
