2014-15 Shootout "Preview"

New, comment

The skills competition is an important part of the game, and yet still one of the silliest. So we treat it as such.

2014 Stats

The Anaheim Ducks were 3-6 (home: 1-3, away: 2-3) in shootouts last season. The team scored 12 shootout goals on 42 attempts (28.6%) while giving up 15 goals against on 43 attempts against (34.9%).

Shooting Order

1. Kyle Palmieri – He’s a legitimate shooting talent

2. Ryan Getzlaf – He should use the Blades of Steel pass-into-net trick

3. Sami Vatanen – He would do something crazy

4. Is Emerson Etem on the team?

5. Cam Fowler – Why not?

6. Corey Perry – He’s terrible at shootouts because he’s a pure shooter but hey

7. Patrick Maroon with Beard – If he shaves, he’s last on the list

8. Did Rickard Rakell make the roster yet?

9. Ryan Kesler – I guess right?

10. Hampus Lindholm – Just to see his sick flow breeze behind him on the attempt

11. Devante Smith-Pelly – He should pick up the puck and just skate it as hard as he can at the goalie in a huge game of chicken hahaha I bet that’s against the rules huh?

12. Andrew Cogliano – Even broken clocks are right twice a day

13. Dany Heatley – If he makes it to the net, take a drink

14. Clayton Stoner – Might be the only player to get a negative Corsi on a SO attempt

15. Bryan Allen –Opposing goaltender laughed his ass off, missed puck

16. Jakob Silfverberg – How did I miss him? I bet Boudreau will too

17. Tim Jackman – He can punch it in

18. Ben Lovejoy – I actually forgot about him

Rest: In no particular order, Francois Beauchemin, Mark Fistric, Nate Thompson, Matt Beleskey, and, uh…I think that’s it!
