Randomly pick players for the shootout

I am usually an opponent to changing the game, because I've watched hockey for over 30 years and the hockey we're watching now is some of the best.

But, I'll admit to wishing for one change. I wish they would have a random selection for players who partake in the shootout.

That would really raise the interest in the shootout for me and it would shine the spotlight on other players.
