Too Many Shootouts

from the Daily News,
Shootouts have been great for hockey. It's the right way to end a game in the regular season when regulation and overtime can't decide a winner. It sure beats those boring ties that had become all too common place in the sport. But have shootouts become too much the norm in today's hockey world? I say yes, and it's time to do something about it. Going into last night's action in the National Hockey League, 33 games were decided by a shootout. Average that out, and more than 90 per cent of NHL nights have had at least one game end in a shootout.
