Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Allan Muir of Sports Illustrated,
After watching Toews light the lamp on Canada’s third, fifth and seventh attempts, I’m thinking the NHL should follow the IIHF’s lead and adopt a similar shootout policy.
The league’s current system—which forces a team to use every available shooter at least once before allowing anyone to take a second attempt—pays lip service to the concept of a team game, but what’s the point? The reality is that the shootout is an individual skills competition, not a team event.
