And in what order?

 

Seems to me like Pete uses seniority to choose who takes the shootouts and not necessarily the best options. Let's be honest, we go to overtime a lot and we are not good at the shootouts. I don't think Zajac is the best choice to be taking shootouts. Henrique is okay but I think for the shootout there are better options. He has been getting better though.

 

I'd try this for a while:

 

Brunner

Ryder

Elias

 

Honestly I never even thought this would matter but it seems like it's actually an issue worth addressing.

Brunner (he's got nifty hands), Henrique (assuming he gets his swagger back), Elias.

Make Brunner and Ryder earn their paycheck by learning how to score in the shootout (where there's no defense involved)

 

and the third spot could go to Teddy if he's playing or Clowe when he comes back, he actually has a high success rate in the S.O.

not to bring this back again but didnt know where to put it until now, but Zach is the active player with the best career SO success % in the league.

 

as for who i'd pick, coaches usually see them in practice so they know more than us but personally i'd put Jagr, Tedenby, Elias. I love Henrique but he just doesnt seem to have it in SO, hope this change.

Is Jagr hell bent on NOT doing it? Elias Jagr and Brunner would be a nice go to if Jaromir is willing to bite the bullet and help us score

he's one of the only guy who scored in a "SO setting" so far this season (breakaway), i can't remember anyone else scoring all alone with the goalie? Not saying it didnt  happened but i just can't put my finger on it if it did.

 

There's no way we don't win one at some point i mean. those are all NHL players who should at the very least once in awhile get a few past the goalie, our goalies havent been bad in SO at all either

Elias, Zids, and Brunner. No Henrique. Getting really tired of him not even putting it on net. Replace Brunner with Clowe when/if he gets back

This.  Since I haven't been to any Devils practices lately and the coaching staff has been at all of them, I'll trust their judgment over whatever my choices would be.

kind of off topic but since practice was mentioned why not.. anyone know if fans are allowed to go watch practices? me and one of my buddys were interested in trying to go check out a practice.

Oh, and the obligatory mention of Cam Janssen. Let's see some of his skills in the shootout! Hell, Clarkson got in some shootouts, didn't he??
