I still don't understand why they don't just finish the 5 mins. They didn't even play a full minute of 3 on 3 cause of the penalty.
I agree, think what they are doing is pointless. Saw one game ended in 12 seconds. Also, since the whole purpose (I would think) is to let the coaches give guys a look during 3-on-3, I would scrap power-plays for this, as well. Just make it similar to a misconduct, player goes to the box for 2 mins and they continue 3-on-3. They have had plenty of work with 4-on-3. I really do not think at this level they need to be taught the consequences of taking a penalty in OT.
