I just don't see why a team should benefit from first failing to win in regulation, then failing to win in overtime, and finally failing to win the skills competition. What exactly would you be giving them a point for?
See, I think a good compromise position would be no points for a shootout win, but that team's fans get a coupon for a free taco or something. Resolution to game, no silly shootout messing up the standings, everyone's happy.
