IS THE SHOOTOUT STALE? The HOCKEY NEWS' Ken Campbell wrote under the header, "It's Time To Shoot The Shootout In The NHL." He wrote, "When the shootout was established in an effort to liven up the game after Lockout-Part-II-of-III, you wouldn’t have found a bigger proponent of it than yours truly. ... I thought that anything that added excitement to the game would be a step in the right direction. And for a couple years, things were good. But when I watch games now, I find myself tapping away at my computer rather than watching the shootout proceedings. They’ve kind of become for me what overtime in the playoffs used to be." Campbell: "When the shootout was established, I was envisioning star-on-star action. And, for the most part, what we’re getting is a conga line of players who only seem to be able to score when they take the puck wide or go in on the goalie at snowshoe speed" (THEHOCKEYNEWS.com, 3/2).
