Presenting...the New Jersey Devils last 26 shootout attempts

209 posts in this topic

lol i mean seriously, every time I mention something about Zach you get on my case whining about it that i'm beating a dead horse, yet every chances YOU get to bring it up quoting me even though i havent said a thing about it really, you'll go for it. You're really one of a kind.

 

Not even the first time i'm telling you this. YOU keep bringing up this conversation or stuff i said in the past. If you really want me to shut up about it stop poking.

 

You posted the link, I clicked on it and read it.  Based on things you've said previously, I wouldn't be surprised if your eyes happened to go to that part of the article first and foremost.

 

But anyway, I think what Pierre was going for is that there's no real answers.  Sure, they can practice, but it may not make any real difference.  I think what the Devils have on their side, more than anything, is the law of averages.  Even the teams who have sucked at shootouts since their implementation don't often lose them at this high of a rate. 

 

One thing that I think we can safely say won't be as good as it once was is the goaltending the Devils got in shootouts though the end of 2012.  Marty was a .710ish guy during that time, and they got decent shootout performance from other goalies too.  Cory's been a .630ish guy in his career, and soon someone not named Marty Brodeur will be the Devils' backup.  Maybe the Devils get lucky and that guy will be a good shootout performer (like Hedberg was).

1-31 in shootout attempts. 0-12 (new NHL record)

 

this is all psychological

 

will it turn around one day? Sure it will, but it's not about turning it around...it's about turning it around before incredible damage to our playoff chances has been done. How long will they carry this on?

 

1-60 perhaps. Maybe lose every shootout until 2016?

 

What are the odds of even getting to this point? 1 in a million I'd guess. No exaggeration

if you're 50% to win every shootout, it'd be 1/(2^12) which is not close to a million.  (1/4096).  If you're 30% to win each one, it's 1.4%, so within 100.  Binomial theorem wise, if NJ's shooters are collectively 30% to score on a given shot, going 1/31 or worse is .02% likely.

Would have loved to see that last night.  He was not in goal...

 

Is there a rule against this?  Or could Marty have shot last night?

I just don't see the downside of practicing the shootout from time to time at the end of the practice. It gets the players a little more in the rhythm and might help them get over their mental block.

Devils have a higher shooting percentage during the game than their shootout shooting percentage. That is all sorts of pathetic

The look of being defeated heading in to the shootout has led right in to uncreative and poor attempts. Even after the game the quotes are downtrodden and have an "we can't win them" feeling. Deboer needs to find a way to make this stupid thing fun again. I'd throw out Bouch first for his rookie enthusiasm/skill then throw out someone who the rest of the guys would enjoy seeing take an attempt like carter, zuby or even volch. At least we'd get some smiles on the bench out of it and anyone in the NHL has the ability to score a breakaway, so it's not like it'd be a total joke. Having a 'wildcard' type could bring some positive vibes to the shootout.

Goalies are not allowed to cross the red line...I'm not sure if this applies to shootouts as well.

That rule certainly cannot be applied to a shootout

Should have pulled Cory with 40 seconds in overtime

 

Too risky.... if Colorado scores in the empty net, we lose the loser point.

Yeah, I guess they wanted to discourage that. I was pretty sure, but when I saw you suggest it, I checked to be sure

 

 

84.2 Overtime – Regular-season – Extra Attacker - A team shall be allowed to pull its goalkeeper in favor of an additional skater in the overtime period. However, should that team lose the game during the time in which the goalkeeper has been removed, it would forfeit the automatic point gained in the tie at the end of regulation play, except if the goalkeeper has been removed at the call of a delayed penalty against the other team. Should the goalkeeper proceed to his bench for an extra attacker due to a delayed penalty call against the opposing team, and should the non-offending team shoot the puck directly into their own goal, the game shall be over and the team that was to be penalized declared the winner.

Once the goalkeeper has been removed for an extra attacker in overtime during the regular-season, he must wait for the next stoppage of play before returning to his position. He cannot change “on the fly.” If he does, a bench minor penalty shall be assessed for having an ineligible player.

I knew this rule existed but I'm still not quite sure the reasoning behind it. It seems like they want to dissuade teams from trying to win in OT and force more shootouts... but wouldn't it make for more exciting hockey to have an empty net in OT?

Not that it would happen very often (if ever), but I'm trying to think of the motivation behind preventing it.

Huh wow, I had NO idea that rule existed.  I was all for PDB pulling for an extra attacker there.

 

Good to know.

Neither did I. Interesting rule. I had no clue about it until now.

Wow, thanks for the heads up DD56. I think that rule is rather ridiculous, what's the point?

I remember when they put this rule into effect, it was before the shootout existed. Some of the discussion centered around odd playoff implications. I can't remember what they are, but there were some situations in which a team would have nothing to lose by pulling a goalie for the entire overtime. They did not want that.

Maybe DeBoer should just ask the players themselves which ones want to take a turn in the shootout. I gotta imagine at least one or two of those lower-rung guys must be itching to have at it, LOL.

Just realized that even if we even only won 3 shootouts this season (3-5) we would be second in the division.
