Daryl Reaugh: Paula Abdul is Better Than Shootouts: If you're unfamiliar with the blogging of Dallas Stars announcer Daryl "Razor" Reaugh, here's as good an entry point as any. "What if NHL games were decided by a judging panel and Joe Public instead of Shootouts when still tied after 65 minutes," he asks. "A club that didn't pinch its defensemen every single shift – points deducted. Teams that employ the trap -- verbal lambasting by all four judges and points taken away for every forward caught skating backwards in the neutral zone. ... 5 forwards on a powerplay or 4 on the ice in overtime – points awarded. ... The truly 'new' NHL would be anarchilogically awesome!"
