....I kinda find it funny any fan of the best shootout team in the NHL would criticize the point system or the tie breakers at all. First tie breaker is regulation wins anyway, which is how it should be. Considering your 9 shootout wins could be what gets your team into the playoffs, I think it's unreasonable to disagree with the current system.
Now forgive me for not going back and looking at your schedule, but if those losses were shootout losses or even just one of them then it is most definitely fair using logic (NHL emphasizing nonshootout wins, see: ROW).
Hope the Devils win, but wont be devestated one way or another. Want the best pick possible for the Devs, plus my old man would be furious to see the Rangers kept out on the last day again.
