NHL should expand shootout to five players

I believe the NHL should change to five shooters in the shootout rather than three.

This way we would be able to witness well kept secret stars such as Marek Malik, who got the call to shoot later in a shootout.

Who knows, maybe there are several other players in the NHL just waiting for a chance to take a shot.
