How To End Long Overtimes

Terry Frei over at seems to have something against long playoff overtimes, although if you read the whole article he then changes his mind. I suspect he really has an issue with the late bed call, or the long since passed writing deadlines, or perhaps dump and chase mentality on increasingly bad ice. I'm not sure, but he suggests alternatives, such as American Idol style judging or even worse, the shootout.

No no, I say. What we need is "Cagie" Ken Doraty, overtime specialist. The former Maple Leaf once scored a hat trick, yes three goals, in a single period of overtime!
