More than a few GMs cringe at the idea of a playoff spot being decided by a shootout.
will continue for the next couple of days on ways to bring a conclusion to games in overtime, including extending the extra period and perhaps going to 3 on 3 play to avoid having games decided by what many in the game consider a chintzy skills competition.
It a bit of a tight rope to walk, however, because the NHL own polling of fans shows the paying customers are fans of the shootout.
With the technology the NHL has now, there is a growing feeling video review should be expanded to incorporate common sense. For instance, if a referee blows his whistle because he has lost sight of the puck, but it been in the net for two seconds, well, that should be a goal.
the issue of a coach challenge.

Should NHL abolish 'chintzy' shootouts
There some support for expanding video review to all aspects of what led to the goal, apart from what might be judgement calls by officials on penalties. A play could be backed up to consider whether the puck entered the zone legally.
A hot point has also been the puck off the netting. A puck hitting the netting was missed in the seconds before Niklas Kronwall scored for the Detroit Red Wings in a game in January against the Los Angeles Kings. His shot hit the net and bounced in off the back of Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick. It tied the game with 27 seconds left in the third period and the Wings went on to win the game in a shootout.
Having the teams change ends before overtime would be a start. That would lead to the so called change, where the net a team is defending is farther away from its bench. That could increase the chances of a team being unable to change players, leading to tired guys being on the ice, or getting caught in a bad change and opening up some ice for the opposition.
Detroit Red Wings general manager Ken Holland has been leading the charge to expand overtime to 10 minutes with perhaps the additional five minutes being played 3 on 3. With two fewer players and more open ice the thinking is goals will be scored.
NHL senior vice president of hockey operations Colin Campbell has said he would like to be able to review missed offside calls that lead to goals.
The disdain with which many people in the NHL hold the shootout is expected to be further evident at the general managers meetings beginning Monday.
shootout probably has addressed that in a way. it was introduced for the 2005 06 season, 13.3% of regular season games have been decided by the shootout (it down a touch to 12.6% this season).
NHL commissioner Gary Bettman has said the league research regularly returns approval of the shootout in the 70 80% range among fans on any question is an extraordinarily high number, Bettman added.
Florida Panthers general manager Dale Tallon sums up the attitude of most of the general managers who will tackle the issue in their discussions over the next three days.
see, said Tallon. talked about it and it was heavily discussed the last time we met and I sure that will be a focus of the conversation moving forward in the next couple of days. It just a matter of what good for the game. 30 general managers will be divided into groups of 10 for Monday morning session and each group will be tasked with debating one of the issues, say expanding overtime, increasing the scope of video review or Nike T Shirts For Ladies
a team game and I always been a big proponent of that, said Tallon. fans really like the shootout, so it got to be some kind of hybrid, I would think, that would allow the team concept to have more of an impact than an individual. But still, we in the entertainment business and we got to sell tickets and get Nike Sleeveless Training Top people to enjoy the game and leave with a good feeling about the game.
