Probably based on his half assed attempt during the last shootout

If that was the case Brown would never have had the chance to exhibit his move. I still want to know whose arse he pulled that out of.

This drives me crazy.
If sutter selects on who had the better game, he's an idiot.
Pick who is going to win you the game.
Every point counts.
Selecting a 20% shooter before a 30%+ is just giving away points.

I actually like picking the hard working, low percentage guys first. To put it concisely, "You're a top line player, ****ing play like it". If the top line guys aren't showing the effort or making a positive difference in the game, let them know. Put the low percentage guys out there in the shootout to show who is making a difference. If you want to call it giving away points, cool; Because that's exactly what top line players are doing by playing poorly or lackadaisically.

On the other hand, how did Trotz wait until #8 to send out Kostitsyn? Or am I giving Kos way too much credit as an offensive player?

I wonder which gets a players attention:
