I am only talking about penalty shots being called during ordinary play - not the shootouts. If a team gets a penalty shot, I think the players on the ice when the penalty shot was called should see their +/- affected if the PS results in a goal. I even think there should be assists handed out to the players setting up the prevented player. Do you agree? But in reality, only the PS scorer's +/- gets affected (and perhaps the goalie's). At least it seems that way according to the HSP files for the most recent seasons. (Example: Defenceman makes a great opening pass, setting a teammate free. The teammate is hindered, resulting in a PS. Teammate scores. No +/- for anyone but the scorer (or?), and no assists for the setting up.) Why does only the PS scorer (and the goalie) get their plus/minus affected? Has it "always" been that way (for as long as +/- has been recorded)? What were/are the reasons?
