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?
I'd be giving the team a point for not losing the actual game which is vastly more important than the shootout. Call it a tie with a bonus point for winning the shootout if there must be a shootout. If a shootout win isnt as positive as a regular win a shootout loss shouldnt be as negative as a regular loss.
