The more shootouts I see, the more I support a 3 point win system.

  1. 1. Should the NHL adopt a 3 point win in regulation and OT, then split the points 2-1 in the shootout?

I am not in opposition to shootouts, but I don't think that a shootout win should have as much impact on the standings as a regulation or OT win. I realize that adopting a 3 point win system will make regular season statistical comparisons less relevant, but I do think goals during the game need to be rewarded more than the shootout. I notice overtime looks rather defensive, and I think that this would create a little more urgency and excitement without sacrificing league parity.

What do you think?

I like it.

That way, all the games would be 3 point games, rather than having some 2 point games and some 3 point games like it is now. Plus, losing in the shootout and only getting 1 of 3 points is how it should be. You get something but it's less than a half win. Also, winning in the shootout isn't worth as much as a regulation/OT win.

It should just be:

3 points: Regulation win

2 points: Overtime/shootout win

1 points: Overtime/shootout loss

0 points: Regulation loss

ROW still used as first tie-breaker

Or just bring back the tie after 20 minutes of overtime.

as canucks fans, I'm sure we all wish that the concept of the 'shootout' was never conceived, never existed in the first place and the whole idea was wiped from the face of this earth!

however, the whole sideshow of the shootout is good for the league, it's entertaining and fun, and is here to stay. i don't see the league switching up the points format, rewarding 3 points for a regulation/OT win would get too confusing for fans, make the standings way too unpredictable ... no other pro sports league has four possible point amounts (3, 2, 1, 0) a team can walk away from a game with.

I like that idea a lot actually. Not only does it reward ROW wins over shootout wins, it also means fewer teams will make the playoffs because of a bunch of OT loses. Like LA did last year I believe.

I agree 100%. It's just retarded the way it is now, and if you think that's bad wait until there are about 10 games left. Pretty much every other game will end in ties.

Only in the NHL could you lose every single hockey game all year and still make the playoffs. This league is dumb, it actually rewards the teams for tying as the game becomes worth 3 points instead of 2.

Hate the shootout. I guess I'm a little biased as a Nucks fan, but still. I don't like the concept that a game (or sometimes when theres more at stake) can come down to 3 or 4 shooters that have fancy skills. Hockey is a team game.

Maybe 5 minutes 4-4 and if thats not resolved 3-3?

I'm definitely in favor of the three point system, especially if we're keeping the shootout.

2 points for a win, 0 points for a loss.

I don't care how long it takes a team to lose, they shouldn't be rewarded for it.

No to the 3 point win. It should go back to the way it was back in the day, get rid of the circus (shootout), 2 points for a win, 1 point for a tie, 0 points for a loss in reg or OT.

HAHAHA

I voted yes and then realized an overtime loss would give the looser nothing in yer system so I deleted it because I don't agree.

3 for a regulation win and 2 for a SO/OT win with a point given to the SO/OT looser. 3 points given in every game no matter what.

Shootout should be extended to 5 shooters minimum, as well as a 3 point system.

Overtime wins should be 3 points and 0 points for the losing team, just like it is in the playoffs.

Like basketball and baseball. 2 points for a win, whether it's in regulation or overtime. 0 points for a loss, whether it's in regulation or overtime.

What is the point in providing a weird incentive to go to overtime?

There's 82 games in a season. People won't jump off bridges if the team has nothing to show for a regular season game that went past 60 minutes.

If regulation ends in a tie you should get one full period of overtime to settle it and that's it, if no one scores then it ends in a tie with one point each.

Nice and simple.
