Shootouts are like...

I think we can all agree that shootouts are ridiculous. But since we're stuck with them and the NHL continues to make awesome rule changes that are ruining the game without any regard to people who actually love the game, let's have some fun by making comparisons. "Shootouts are like..."
Add your analogy below

I think it's a nice way to end a regular season game. It makes the playoffs more special in my eyes. At first I HATED it but it's definitely grown on me. I like that these games no longer go until like 12am every night.
You would definately would love going to a regular season BCHL Game then if it went the distance. 4-4 FOR 5 THEN 3-3 in OT . Imagine putting that in place instead of the shootout with the skills and speed in the NHL . It would be more entertaining with all the open ice. I find shootout is more of a skills competition then a team game .

Call me old school but between the Raymond spin o rama (yes I know it was a big goal) and the Daugavins weirdo attempt, I'm hating shootouts more and more everyday. They're showboaty and flashy. And it's so lame when the last 2 minutes of OT are spent with both teams just trying to run out the clock. Take away the SO and there will be a mad dash by both teams to score in OT. Will make for some great hockey.
I think you have it partly right here, hockeyville, but I don't think the Canucks do that. Their opponents often do and why not? A team that does as poorly as the Canucks in shootouts should always go for the OT win, while the opposition might as well play for the shootout...

Can you imagine drowning AT a KK Rev concert?

Each shot gets called in advance and then both shooters go at the same time. First one to score when the other didn't wins.
Still a stupid skills competition, but at least a more entertaining one!
Every single one of them.
Thanks for the memories, Luo! :'(
