The shootout was instituted in the NHL at the start of the 2005-06 season. Over the years it has taken on a mind of it's own, and in a way has become hockey art, even though it has nothing to do with the actual game of hockey.
The shootout is one of those things fans either love or hate. However, I think it's impossible to hate great shootout goals or attempts, because at the end of the day we all want to be entertained.
Now that is out of the way, I can talk about my 10 favorite shootout artists. This ranking list is not based on players with the best shootout stats, although that plays a part. It's more about my opinion of the best shootout artists in the NHL today.
