Extending OT is the best solution if you want to avoid the situation. However, it would have a significant negative impact in terms of wear and tear over the course of the season. 4 on 4 also remains a different beast than 5 on 5.

I simply don't understand why anyone would want to punish the "losing" team that much for not winning a shootout... but that's just me.

3 pts for a win in regulation solves all these problems with a quickness, while also rewarding teams for finishing off an opponent in regulation.
