The fact is that the NHL set this system up to define winners and losers of games.

If you are going to totally devalue the shootout by eliminating those results from determining standings, then why have them there?

Aside from, and unfortunately, serving a fan base that cannot appreciate the value of hard earned tie games, what purpose do they serve if the "win" that you earn will not be treated as such when it matters most.

NHL is brutal with this format.
