getting rid of the loser point would kill the shootout faster
I'm in the 3 points for a win, 2 points for an OT/SO win, 1 point for OT/SO Loss camp.
I still don't understand why having a winner every game was necessary in the first place. I always felt that a tie game set up an exciting environment the next time the two teams met. Given that the current climate seems to necessitate a winner every game, my preference would be playoff style OT with 2 points awarded to the winner and 0 to the loser.
Don't listen to Naysay, and get off his lawn you whipper-snapper.
Even BASEBALL plays until one team wins..
