    "Play 5 mins of 3 on 3..." 'shuperman'

    Don't they already do that with Atoms between periods?

    3-on-3 eh. Hmm. So, no penalties then? No holds barred? Wild west?

    Because, surely you can't have 3-on-2 or....3-on-1, right?!

    On the very rare occassion that there's a three on three in an actual game penalties are still called and the player still goes to the box. But the player can be replaced on the ice. Basically a penalty in three on three shortens the bench

    play 20 minutes of 4 on 4 if need be, i used to like the shootouts but it's become a joke when players almost come to a complete stop before shooting, they would never have time like that in a real game. why not Eriksson on a shootout attempt?? brought him here to score didnt we?

    Why not.  On 4 on 4 you can have 2 penalties.  3-2 would be awesome.

    I think if a penalty is called in a 3 on 3 situation the team on the power play is given an additional skater making it a 4 on 3.

    Preach on shupe.  3 on 3 may not be perfect, but it's better than 1 on 0, with no defense, checking, speed, passing, positioning, tuurovers...etc.

    Play hockey and save the little skill games for the all-star break.

    Kelly is perfect in his career on penalty shots. Just sayin'.

    Kelly at least tried something.  Krejci looked like his feelings on the shootout correspond exactly to Al Iafrate's feelings about scoring empty net goals. 

    Bergeron is 2/2 this year.  Seguin 1/3.

    Anyone else find it odd that the Bruins don't really seem to have a rotation for this yet?  I'm thinking Bergeron's the only lock, but who else do they have who has the right kind of shiftiness for the shootout?




    You have to ask, BB?

    10 min of 4on4, nobody scores, neither team gets a point.

    Re: The Shootout

    Just watched the Packers and Vikings end in a tie.

    I can't believe it.

    They should have had a field goal kicking contest.

    Or

    A "who can run the 40 fastest" contest.

    Or

    A "QB vs. distance vs. tire" contest.

    That would be better.

     Adding entertainment to the regualar season is the sole purpose of the shootout. It's gimmicky, but no more than what a 3 on 3 would be. Four on four I can live with, but if two teams are tied after 65 minutes of hockey, maybe they were just meant to be tied.

    Ayup, agreed. If fans want entertainment ask the ice girls to face off.
