Guest fansince1975 Posted March 19, 2008 Report Share Posted March 19, 2008 The league keeps talking about more scoring. There are more penalty shots today then 20 years years ago. However a large portion of the penalty shots are stopped by the goalie. Why not then give the team a 2 minute powerplay if the player did not score? Right now it is possible that a team could on purpose put there hand on the puck in the crease, knock the net off on purpose or pull down a player with better then 50% chance the goalie will stop the penalty shot. It does not seem fair that the team not only does not get the goal against for a serious infraction but is further hurt by not being able to pressure the other team for 2 minutes. Otherwise the team should have the option to take a 2 minute penalty instead of the penalty shot. The benefits of the 2 minute penalty might be greater and the negative of not scoring on the penalty shot are not felt by the team not scoring.
