I'd like the shootouts to be more fluid and dynamic. Every shooter is like the beginning of The Mighty Ducks. In my scenario:
Team A lines their players up single file at their defensive blue line, at the far boards.
Team B lines their players up single file at their defensive blue line, at the near boards.
Player A1 takes off and picks up a puck staged midway between the boards and the center face off dot, on the redline. Player A1 goes in on goal and shoots.
Player B1 is triggered by A1s shot, takes off and grabs his own puck. A1 is returning to center ice along the boards, stops after just crossing the redline and rests near the boards.
Player B1 is shooting, triggers A2s departure.
Cycle through the first 5 shooters. If it's still a tie, pick 5 more shooters. The first 5 are still eligible to be picked for a second volley.
It would make for a dynamic, non-stop conclusion to a dynamic game and would be awesome for the TV audience and the crowd.
This isn't that different than the line rushes at the AHL All-Star game, except you have it happening on both sides of the ice.
