After watching The Balckhawks and Red Wings go to the shoot out on Sunday I was amazed at Patrick Kane and his consistant shootout goals. In my opinion he is the best shootout goal scorer in the world. As much as I dispise the kid I have to give him praise when its due. Any thoughts on who is the best?

When I get some feedback I will add a pole question.

Every season it really seems to be someone new. Kovalchuk was on fire last year I know. Stoll had a great season some year and so did Crosby. I don't feel like doing the research now haha. I don't think anyone really stands out on a career basis just a bunch of names leveling out around the same 50%-60%

You get a pretty small sample size by just looking at this years stats. Most guys haven't taken that many shots so far.

If you go back a year and look at the full season, Kovalchuk is at the top with 11/14 for 79%. Malkin is right behind him at 8/11 for 73%.

9 guys have 100%, but they only took 1 or 2 shots each. Hendricks and Alfredsson both deserve an honourable mention going 5/6 for 83%

The one that boggles me the most is Pacioretty. He was called upon 13 times in the shootout but only got 2 goals. I'm surprised he kept getting put out there for the shootout with that kind of track record.

Pavel Datsyuk or if going by numbers, Frans Nielsen, "As of March 2013, he has a success rate of 62.5%" He is 25 for 40 I believe

I believe Frans Nielsen holds the NHL record, at least for active players (with over 24 attempts) with 25/40 or 62.5%.

At one time Jarkko Ruutu was called upon to take a penalty shot for team Finland in the so. He scored, so the coach put him back out again as soon as it was ok by the rules. He scored again, so they put him out for a third one. I can't remember wether he scored on that one too, but it was quite a night for Ruutu. And I doubt he ever got a similar chance again anywhere.

I remember former Canuck Marik Malik in the shootout when he played for the Rangers. That was pretty cool for a defenseman behind the leg stick handle and goal.

Sam Gagner had one of the nicest moves in shootout but it became so predictable that it hasn't been effective since his rookie season

Buddy I called this EXACT situtation on here two years ago and was flamed, so I guess I have a bit of hockey knowledge, not to mention the 4 years I played in the OHL idiot.

OT a bit, but...

Here is the clip. It was against Canada actually of all countries. Finnish commentary.

Jussi Jokinen had a move (not the Forsberg) that seemed to work 100% of the time. Just low blocker, unstoppable, every single time.

Frans Nielsen, as others have said, is pretty successful. Datsyuk and Kane are just so talented and tricky, they're probably the 2 players I fear most when we go into a shootout against a team.
