Okay, I've had it with this 1pt for losing in OT/Shoot out. Officially, there are only 6 teams with losing records in the NHL. This is a joke. The NHL point system must go. I understand that they wanted to do away with ties. But this OTL crap is out of hand.
Gary Bettman and the rest of these idiots who think losing in OT/Shoot out is worth a point should be shot. Losers shouldn't be rewarded with points. Also, Winners shouldn't be rewarded with 2pt because they won in a shoot out.
Here is how a see it.
2 pts for a Victory (Regulation or OT)
0 pts for a Loser (Regulation or OT)
1 pts for a Victory by shootout.
I believed that it would also make teams try even harder to win the game while the game was being played. Instead of getting to this gimmick we call Shoot Out.
It also stops rewarding teams free points for making it to OT. Which mean teams would have to play even harder to get their points.
