Guest Posted June 4, 2010 Report Share Posted June 4, 2010 NHL G.M.'s are discussing changes to the shootout because they feel too many games were decided in that manner this season http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=323408 I like some of the ideas being considered in the article ( 4 on 4,,, then 3 on 3) and i might add that it may even make sense to have a quick siren at the 15 minute mark of the 3rd period ( if the game is tied) and begin 4 on 4 play at that point,,, followed by 3 on 3 for 5 minutes of O.T. That way the games remain the same length of time.If a goal is scored (within that 5 minutes till the end of the game) that ties things up,,,then immediately go to 4 on 4 play for remainder of game, followed by 3 on 3 in overtime,,, and then the shootout if needed.
