Lately though, it seems every WC game ends up with 3 points.

We should go back to 2 point games, period. **** the shootout, get rid of it.
The best option would be to eliminate two points from each OT game. OT winner gets a single point. Loser gets nothing.

The loser of the game gets a point. That's why it's called a loser point. The loser of a game shouldn't get any reward for losing.
