Default Is it time to examine the penalty shot?

The penalty shot is to give a team an opportunity to score a goal when a penalty has occured that interferes with a scoring chance. (Stick tossing by a goalie could be argued as not relevent to that, I guess)
These days, the penalty shot advantage is statistically with the goalie.
I'd like to see it changed to give the wronged team a choice of penalty shot or 2 min penalty.

The team that will be penalized gets the thoice???? No, if anything, it should be the team on who the fraction was committed that gets the choice... but on one shot your odds are 50/50... on a PP, the odds are variable depending on the two teams, etc.... there is a reason there are situations where PS's are awarded instead of PP's.... if the goalie knocks the net off in the last minute you want a penalty shot, not a PP 'cuz you hardly have time to set up a PP in less than a minute.... they should leave the rule as is.

"The wronged team", meaning the team that is awarded a penalty shot. 50/50? You sure about that?

The odds are still 50/50 because there are only to outcomes: either goal or no goal. What actually happens is another story.

Lee, I think you're a little confused about this whole math thing. When you flip a coin, the odds of heads (or tails) is 50-50 because there are only two outcomes AND because each outcome is equally likely. When an NBA player takes a foul shot, there are only two outcomes, but NBA FT percentages are above 70%. When an NBA player takes a foul shot, or when an NHL player takes a penalty shot, the two outcomes are NOT equally likely to occur. Karen is right. I like the idea she proposed, although I have to think teams would almost always take the penalty shot. If you were sitting on a big lead, though, it might make more sense to take the power play and burn a couple minutes off the clock.

Doesn't the penalty killing squad have a huge statistical advantage? I could be way off base, but don't most teams kill of penalties at a 90% clip?

exactly sc....so there is an edge in having a penalty shot instead of a powerplay. I don't think most teams score on the powerplay at a clip of 33%. I love the penalty shot and wish they'd institute a shootout after a scoreless first ot.
