The new NCHC will apparently use shootouts to award extra points in conference games. What do people think about it?

Shoot-Outs stink...bad enough that they do it in the NHL...sad rule to say the least.

Most definitely. What other reason would there be for a new league to do things like hire people, create a website and establish rules?

I don't really have a feeling either way but if you are going to have shootouts, it should be something that is done by all the leagues or non of the leagues.

I can't think of a good reason to have shootouts.

Booo. If you want to cut down on ties, extend overtime to 8 or 10 minutes.

When did ties become so horrible?
Sometimes teams are evenly matched on a given night.
It's ridiculous but the "fans" love it so it's likely here to stay.

I can't think of a good reason to have shootouts.The only reason I can think of is to prepare players for the NHL. Even with that ties are not a bad thing I hate them. I wish the NHL would stop using them so we can go back to point systems that are easy.

How can anybody say it prepares players for the NHL... Even in the shoot out its not a repetitive skill

Even in the shoot out its not a repetitive skillI'd say more like getting players mentally prepared for everything at the next level, including shoot outs. Plus they'll be practicing them more which will develop their skill set on that part of the game.

Does anyone know if the CHL has shootouts?

Yes, the CHL uses shootouts - it is the training ground for the top developmental league to the NHL!

Using shootouts to attract more casual fans as the on-ice product isn't what it was 5+ years ago as the quality of the college hockey talent pool continues to decline each year with 30+ players leaving early.

Shootouts are happening. Everyone should really start focusing their energy on other things than stopping them.

Prep for the playoffs. Just keep going until someone scores. Heck, don't even run the clock; if they have to play for an hour straight, put them through it.
