Lucic played 3 on 3 OT hockey while playing for the Coquitlam Express.
from Joe Haggerty of CSNNE,
“You feel like it’s almost fitting that it ends that way, rather in the shootout. It’s definitely something I would be in favor of,” said Lucic. “A five minute 4-on-4 and then a five minute 3-on-3 would be really exciting, and cool to watch. Hopefully they do something where we can get it done in overtime rather than a shootout.
“I remember that nobody ever came off the ice and was like ‘that’s so stupid that we lost it 3-on-3’ [when they got back to the dressing room]. Your chances were always pretty good to score. It was just a matter of who was going to score first.”
What was the 3-on-3 session like?
“It was just back-and-forth: chance after chance after chance,” said Lucic. “It becomes almost like pond hockey, run-and-gun type style. It definitely settles the score. I think maybe it’s 60/40 with the [players] that want to see an improvement in the [overtime/shootout] area.
“We’ll see what the geniuses of hockey come up with. I’m all for making a change... Even if it’s a ten-minute 4-on-4 that would make it better and more exciting. I just think it’s more fitting to have a game end that way rather than in a shootout.”
Then we have this and if you read between the lines, it may be a compensation issue...
