A win is a win, and a loss is a loss. Since the NHL wanted to do away with ties, wins can happen at later stages of the game, but they're still wins.
A narrow shootout victory should hold just as much weight as a blowout win in regulation. And a loss 10 seconds into overtime shouldn't earn you a charity point when you get nothing if you lose 11 seconds earlier.
I hate the idea of a shootout resulting in a two-point swing. It's a crap shoot and is kitsch at best. I understand wanting to make it simple but I would definitely be against a system like that.
I like piqued's system. More points for a real win (regulation) than for OT or Shootout. Scoring a real goal in OT is still legit hockey and should be rewarded by the point system to show that.
