Let the debate begin.
The shootout goal attempt by Kaspars Daugavins is the talk of the NHL this morning. His stick upside down spinarama attempt was something to watch. Creativity at its best.
It didn’t work.
Tuukka Rask didn’t fall for it. It worked for Daugavins at the AHL level. You can’t blame him for trying it here. Why not? Nothing else was working.
But, this is the NHL. This wasn’t the NHL all star weekend.
Sure, I loved watching it. Thought it was great.
The bigger issue might be the shootout itself.
You have to wonder if games should be decided this way.
Both teams were trying to get to OT and the shootout in the last five minutes.
Everybody was having a good laugh afterwards.
My buddy Doug MacLean from Rogers Sportsnet didn’t like it one bit. He felt Daugavins shouldn’t have done it in a regular season game. No place for it at all.
You’re going to hear a lot of opinions on this today.
What do you think? Here it is here:
