    Quite Simple, Pick a few countries and who you think they should/would use in a shootout. (And please keep in mind these are off the top of my head)


    Canada: (I have no idea, however, in which order)
    1.Sakic
    2.Lemieux
    3.Iginla
    4.Thorton
    5.Staal

    Russia: (Might send Ovechkin first, and a vet like Fedorov last. A miss would be very hard for a really young player)
    1.Datsyuk
    2.Fedorov
    3.Kovalchuk
    4.Kovalev(would probably replace with Mogilny is available)
    5.Ovechkin

    Sweden:
    1.Sundin
    2.Alfredsson
    3. Nasland
    4. Forsberg
    5. Lidstrom(probably)

    Iginla is something like 1/12 on PS/SO

    I would not want him shooting. Heck, I'd rather have Regehr take a PS.

    I see a pretty good list for Russia, with Pasha, Ilya Kovalchuk, Ovechkin...but I'm a little surprised no one has mentioned Max Afinogenov...I think he would be a good possibility.

    Am I off the mark somewhere?

    Iginla is god awful at the shootout. I think he's scored twice this year and one of them was a slapshot from just inside the blueline during exhibition. In-game breakaway and he seems to do alright because he aint thinking too much, but during a shootout/penalty shot he overthinks and usually messes up.

    No way he shoots, IMO...

    EDIT: I see Phanuthier already covered this... oooops

    I'm sure Berg would pull out a move superior to Malik's.

    In real world it would look something like this:

    1. T. Selänne
    2. S. Koivu
    3. J. Lehtinen
    4. T. Ruutu
    5. J. Jokinen (is 3/3 in SO this year)
