My biggest point to this was that teams should be better rewarded for a regulation win versus an over time win. If you want to take away the points for an OT loss still works great and no "extra" columns get added to the stat sheet. The competition will be harder in the OT periods and the game will be better for it.

On a side note from a marketing standpoint the shootout, like it or not, brings in the fringe fans. You have to remember that this is a business when it is all said and done.
