Mainly because they aren't fancy deke players, fancy passing plays is their strong game.

What makes the Sedins so special is that there is two of them. They can read the play and each other better than any two other players in the league. In shootouts you are by yourself.

Pretty much this, the Sedins aren't the most athletically talented players, the way they dominate is with their creativity and understanding of the game, which won't help you in a shootout.

Somebody should should tell Daniel, Stop trying to deke! You have one of best wrist shots in the league, use it!

Couldn't agree more. Neither Sedin has ever had game-breaking deking ability, but Danny at least has an extremely accurate wrist shot.

There are those that are world class playmakers and there are those that are pure goal scorers. A few rare players are blessed with both. Sedins aren't pure goal scorers, it's not their thing, and that's fine by me!

They also tend to skate pretty slow which does add to the predictability factor...

QUOTE (bugmo @ Jul 23 2009, 12:09 AM) And you are an idiot who can't see things for the way they are. It's people like you who make it seem okay for the canucks to have a non playoff making team every year. Gillis supporter go jump off the Patullo.

This was said to me and it makes me laugh everytime I read it.

Why do they keep trying them? Give someone else a chance even a fourth liner.
Does anyone know the NHL shootout rules? Can you go with the same person twice or do you have to deplete the entire lineup first? Thanks anyone. ;)

Someone just needs to either tell Henrik to pass to the netting or tell Daniel to quickly undress and stand behind the other team's net...

More importantly, why would AV put Daniel out as our 3rd shooter?! That's supposed to be the spot taken by our most clutch guy. Super weak attempt by him and it basically puts the game on the opponent's stick for 2 more shots before Kassian comes in and scores. Bad move by AV there.

I guess they are the type of players who use their linemates as decoys and screens. They're not just straight shooters so it's hard for them to score in a one-on-one situation. Still beyond me how they can be SO bad though. It's not as though they don't have tremendous skill lol

I was baffled to see Daniel as the #3 shooter. Should have been Raymond... or Kassian (in hindsight).

They both have had some highlight plays where they've undressed 2 defensemen and scored...so i dunno why they suck so much. Too much time to think i guess, they're more about the take whats given and react type players.

They are too good for shootouts... they like the challenge of scoring with defenders all over them. :)
