There are unintended consequences to each of the proposed scoring systems. I'm not sure that I am all that upset with what we have now.

If your team is unable to play a series at home, you aren't winning the Cup. And the best teams will rise to the top no matter which of these systems are used. Changing things around usually only results in a few mediocre teams getting switched from being in the playoffs to being out of them.

The affect of the 3 point game is hugely overstated. It just keeps ratings up a bit down the stretch.
The reason I like the 3 point system is purely because I think it will separate the top teams and keep 'em free of the clutter a bit. As we know, it doesn't have a significant impact on the standings... but I do want to see the playoff seedings as accurately as possible reflect the ordering of the respective teams.
