    Just something I’ve been thinking about. A goal is a goal and if your going to include a shootout in NHL I feel like it should count

    They could maybe give a goal to the player who scores the winner, since the winning team is awarded a 'goal' on the scoreboard, but otherwise it would skew the numbers too much

    I’d like an endless 3 on 3 until a goal rather then a shootout for sure

    Either no, or only to the "game-winner" in the same manner as a penalty shot

    I agree with a lot of the posters here the game winning goal in a shootout should be awarded.

    Records could be broken if a shootout goes into double-digit rounds, you'd end up with 10+ goals per team.

    So a team is tied 1-1 after OT and then 5 players score goals in the shootout with one team scoring 3 shootout goals and the other scoring 2 goals. Final score on record is 2-1 but you want 8 players awarded goals in the game? Nah.

    Are we also going to ruin goalie SV% and GAA by including goals against in their game totals? You really can't count goals for scorers but not count goals against for goalies.

    How can anyone vote yes to this?
    The shootout is not equal to a penalty shot.

  13. No, but they should be considered a GWG.

    No. There wasn't a game winning goal scored.

    No, being good at shoot-outs is hardly a noteworthy talent.

    This, also if this was the case Brayden point would have led the league in gwg by a lot (already was tied for gwg lead and had 5 shootout goals)

    Just make it a 10 min 3v3 (almost sure to be a goal every time) and no SO (game ends in a tie). Oh, and make the tie breaker regulation wins instead of ROT because OT is a gimmick too.

    I always thought the game winner should count personally... but im not a fan of the shootout and honestly id rather see 3 on 3 until someone scores. Would be more exciting for the fans... and would force teams on 3 v 3 to play more aggressive and not hold the puck until shootout.

    The most credit I'd be willing to give shootout goals is a gwg tally to the winning shot without the actual goal awarded, but that has complications so no across the board.

    I agree with the GWG for sure. If it’s going to be in the game you have to have some reward for winning it.

    Of course not. If you count them all, it massively inflates scoring totals. If you only count the winner, that makes no sense because the other goals the team scored might be just as crucial. The best way to go about things is to just not count any of them and have shootout goals as an entirely separate category.

    No. They shouldn't even give out a W for winning a shootout or a 3-on-3 gimmick OT. It's an injustice to all those teams that won their game in regulation. Might as well start giving standings points for each goal scored in the shootout.
