If I wasn't at work, I'd try to figure this out. I'd like to see how the standings would change with this system.
I went and did our Div:
ANA [(28 x 3) = 84 (4 x 2) = 8 (2 x 1) = 2] = 94
DAL [(26 x 3) = 78 (5 x 2) = 10 (4 x 1) = 4] = 92
SJ [(27 x 3) = 81 (3 x 2) = 6 (2 x 1) = 2] = 89
LA [(25 x 3) = 75 (6 x 2) = 12 (1 x 1) = 1] = 88
Pho [(26 x 3) = 78 (3 x 2) = 6 (3 x 1) = 3] = 87
I hope my lazy math is correct.

The current point system is flawed but at least it doesn't punish a team for failing in the shootout by punishing them with 0 points even though they were the equal of the opposition in the actual hockey game.
The only fair solution which keeps shootouts is the 3210 system.
3 points for a real/OT win
2 points for a shootout win
1 point for shootout loss
0 points for a real/OT loss.
So obvious a caveman could come up with it.
But will never happen.
