3-on-3 Overtime Period

I was watching tonight's roller coaster Stars-Avalanche game, and during the overtime period coincidental minors resulted in a short glimpse at 3-on-3 hockey, and my god, was it entertaining. So much open ice, so much speed, so much action.

It led me to think about the NHL's current overtime format. The gimmicky shootout is enjoyable, and when your team is 3-1 in them, there isn't much to complain about. But few true hockey fans seem to think a shootout is a judicious way to find a winner. 

I haven't taken a close look into whether they've tried it out in the R&D camps, but personally, I think a 3-on-3 period following the 5 minute 4-on-4 would be a great idea. It's real ice hockey, and it usually results in a lot of scoring chances.

What do you guys think?
