Still. I can see Torts's reasoning. They are expected to carry the team, and the shootout is a time to prove that you are a clutch player. The Sedins always find some new detail to work on during the summer. I think Torts may be pointing out what they need to work on.

Said he has coached great players who want nothing to do with the SO so you don't use them but he has talked to the twins and they want to be part if it. No secret, you have to give your best players a chance to work it out. Case closed, as long as they want to be part of the SO he will use them in that situation. But at the same time he wants to use different guys too, shake it up and see who can step it up.
As I said in another post I was more impressed with him going to three forwards in the OT. I like that aggressive go for it approach.

Try to imagine my expression when I saw Booth lining up for the Shoot out and then the follow up flubbing of the puck as he closed in on the goalie.
