Is that a fair way to end a season? Sure, it ended up great for us, but if we would have lost I'm sure there would have been outrage that an entire season of work came down to a couple penalty shots.
Absolutely, but if it had ended in a tie, we would have been in.

You will never have no OTL as long as the SO is in place, and the shootout isn't going anywhere. The NHL likes it, and casual fans like it... which is why the NHL likes it.
