They should just make the stat be points minus shootout.
Good shootout teams effectively get penalized for being good at a shootout.
If they have a tiebreaker for this, why not just remove the shootout entirely? If it's a part of the game, it should be treated as such, not some red-headed step-child part.
I look at it more as teams that can't finish their opponent in the time alotted get punished. Makes sense to me. Other teams finished their opponent off within 65 minutes which is better than taking 65 plus a SO. It's working against us but I'm fine with it. If games ended in ties I don't think we'd be in the PO right now i could be wrong about that though
