    In response to Chowdahkid-'s comment:

    Brandon Sutter has a 100% rate ( 2 for 2 ) in shootouts for the Pens.

    Dwight King for the Kings also. ( 1 for 1 ).

    There's a reason why they're not at the top of the list for more shootouts for their teams. Better offensively gifted players usually go first.

    I see no problem with Julien, Bylsma or Sutter .........and everyone else with the title of NHL Head Coach letting their best players try to win the game with this thought process. 

    If Smith was in the top 3 and not scored then there'd be those who would've complained about that also.

    btw........ Andrei Marcov has the same percentage as Smith. (1 for 1........ 100%)

    Was Therrien also incorrect for not putting in his so-called best shootout player ?



    Chow ...give me a break , dont be stupid ...Reilly Smith is probably one of the most talented offensive player in the NHL ...after 10 trials everyone on this board will go nuts about him ...true hockey experts see it way ahead of everybody ....so keep this post , mark my words ...from now on CJ will try Reilly Smith in the S/O and will never regret it ...my only concern is if he would have used him last night we would have probably beat the scabs ...but now I have to live with CJ's decision and survive to the insults and stupid mails and phone calls all day long here in Montreal....ANOTHER GREAT PREDICTION FROM STANLEY (red please take note)

    In response to MrHulot's comment:

    Now I get it - Reilly Smith is the new Blake Wheeler!

    But I agree that the B's should alter their shootout approach. The other teams know exactly what's coming, which increases the opposition's chances to take the extra point. There have to be better options than picking virtually the same trio every time. It seems that the Bruins simply don't have a player with dazzling moves who will deke the goalies out of their jockstraps each time, and it also appears that CJ does not have much of a plan for the "skills competition". He tried Cedfano a couple of times in the past (and he even scored once, afaik), maybe he should pick Krug or Hamilton. If you don't have someone who will surprise the goalie with an array of weird moves a la Patrick Kane, then try to surprise them with someone who hasn't been used that often and, of course, has at least a chance to bury the puck - I would not try Miller, McQuaid or Potter in the shootout. BTW: Has anybody ever seen Fat take a penalty shot?



    The new Blake Wheeler ??   No ...much more talented, much more heart and much more potential....call him the new Ryan Johansen if you wish ...

    Krejci, Bergeron, Marchand, Iggy, Soderberg... these have been the B's best offensive players over the past month or more. I have no doubt that Reilly Smith might have taken one of the next couple of attempts had it gone that far. But CJ is pretty consistent by rewarding/going with the guys who are playing the best at that time.

     

    It's easy to say in hindsight that those were poor choices, because their attempts weren't that good. But the SO is still a crapshoot and you can't fault a coach for going with his best-performing players.

    Poor shoot attempts by all of them.  I wouldn't have put in Krejci last night , he looked a little off on his scoring chances he got in close .

    I would like to see Eriksson more often.  Finally I got to see Marchand and wasn't his best move.

    They must practice shoot outs a little and Claude , staff know whom usually does well and that who they chose along with maybe a player that is on a hot streak.

    As for Reilly ..... he's slowly fading away, been invisible last few games. Although maybe Claude should put some new farces on the shoot out.

    Seemed to me the plan was to beat Budaj 5 hole in the shootout since the first 3 all attempted to go there. Bergeron almost always tries to tuck it in by the left post but he too tried 5 hole. It had to be the plan, but Budaj to his credit stood tall. I think Iginla went higher than he wanted to.

    On a break away I'll take Reilly Smith number 1 ....my number 2 Paille...number I would change my shooters because everybody in the NHL mostly the goaltenders have seen Bergeron's moves and know what to,expect...Smith has been fantastic on his attempt and scored, I would love to see Smith, Paille, Soderberg for a change ...but CJ has much as I like him is way too conservative to make that kind of move....so we keep losing in S/O ...Thank God there is no S/O in the playoffs

    Paille probably is the bruins worst breakaway shooter.

    I have no issue with Smith taking a shootout attempt, and no issue with him not taking one.  He has one attempt.  He lost the puck, got lucky, found it, and took advantage of how hard that is to read for a goaltender.  Nothing in that one attempt should convince anyone that Smith is a shootout stud.

    Nothing in his season should convince anyone of anything.  He had one great 20 day stretch.

    I used to watch Paille skate and think "how is this kid on the fourth line?!?" Then you realize, it's because he can't finish consistently.

     

    I love Paille's skating, speed, and work ethic, but I've always thought that if he could bury more of those great scoring chances he creates, he'd be seeing more ice time and playing as a top-6 forward.

     

    I think he's gotten better at breakaways, but I wouldn't exactly call him clinical.

    Regarding Paille I always kind of felt that way as well A finisher he is not but I alwas keep hopeing. Smith may have more finish but still not enough time. We should start to get a good idea his next full season.

    The Bs do everything to not do a shootout.  The result is more wins this year.  Three forwards and a defenseman in OT is mighty fine to this fan.  With the play of the second line last night, do you think CJ was rewarding the second line.  I do.  Lastly I am so pleased shootouts are not in the playoffs!

    Bergeron goal in the shootout was awesome. I was pleased to see Smith score as well but his move paled in comparison to Bergeron's.

    The copy machine in the office has stopped working twice recently.  

    Both times I opened it up, found the paper jam and got it working again.  I'm 2 for 2.

    Therefore I am the greatest copy machine technician around and could fix any broken copier.

    Take it to the bank.

    Please come fix my copier.

     

    What we don't know is whether Smith stinks at penalty shots in practice (if the B's even practice them at all). Will one lucky SO goal and one pretty good one change how often he shoots? Maybe. But it's silly to say the Bruins success or failure depends on the shootout percentage of a 2nd-year player.

    No problem.  Did you try kicking it, swearing, and then pacing in front of it?

    Smith's whole MO is that he has good hands, a scoring touch, and seems to be unfazed by pressure.  So it would be no surprise that he's good at shootouts.

    But given 25 attempts, do I think he'd be statistically better than Bergeron/Marchand/Krejci etc.??  No.

    I've seen the B's practise 7x since CJ's been the coach. The only time I see seen S.O attempts is when there's some players deciding who's buying lunch. I've ssen one drill where the pucks are passed from the corner to the blue line & another player comes from the opposite side of the puck. And I think this is for guys coming in late. Like Mezaro's goal yesterday.
