?

Should auto-dekes + spinoramas be allowed in the shootout?

    So with shootouts (cue puke emoji) apparently in this season, we need to decide together what rules we should have because nobody wants bullshit. Currently though, nobody knows what is classified as bullshit.

    Vote in the poll above please. I think it might be okay, but not every attempt and only one or two per attempt, not a giant spinorama sequence lmao.

    Also, what do we think about left-right sequences in shootouts? Need some input.

    If anyone has ideas for rules, please do mention it :link:

    The thing about ties... they don't exist in the NHL.

    How about this:
    Top 3 shooters, no auto-dekes, no Left-Right, no spins, no gimics.
    Beyond that, anything goes cause nobody wants a 25 round shootout.

    Have you played the newer NHL's? I love shootouts, specially against the human goalies. Nowadays there are plenty of different dekes and moves to play with. The feeling you get when you score with some nice new move is awesome.
    In NHL 09 pc shootouts are pretty meh but i will deal with em cuz they belong to real NHL as well. You can still try to be creative :D

    The only problem I have with shootouts is, if you're going to have them you have to allow some creativity, because no one wants to have a shoot out where 15 guys on both sides have gone and no one's done anything but taken a slapshot.

    I've said this before, but I believe the automatic deke button should be completely removed, because it's basically sort of a modifier in EA that increases the chances the next shot will go in.

    In the shoot out I'm OK with guys using manual stickhandling and trying to beat a goalie that way, but I really don't think the auto deke has any place being anywhere in VHA.

    Are you serious mate :D ? Then, the only way to score is straight shot? or pass?

    i like the play till someone scores overtime of old.Im anti this 100% But if its in,we do need some rules so we dont get alot of busted up vaginas.Limit the 1-2 deke to 1.Every attempt must be different.Simple rules.

    This will not end well.......

    I say we play until someone drops. The NHL should do that. Loser points, seriously?
