Why? Are there people out there saying, "I'm not a fan of the NHL, but if they have a shootout, I will follow it religiously."

I highly doubt that new fans would out number fans that might be disenchanted by extreme changes to the rules.

As for ties, I don't like it when my team ties, but I downright hate it when my team losses. The league sure isn't going to scrap losses. THere are times when a team loses and the announcer says that it's a shame that one of these teams had to lose. There are times when teams compete, on the whole, evenly in a game.
