When you get right down to it, that's all there really is anymore: wins and losses.

Now I know people will come in and say "shootout isn't real hockey rabble rabble rabble" but fact of the matter is it's here to stay. Might as well do it properly (based on pretty much every other sport except soccer which is on its own planet really) and not award failure.

Points had a purpose with ties. With no ties I don't see what purpose they serve.
Like it or not, there are different types of "wins" and different types of "losses." You can't ignore it. It's a fact.

Yeah, it's a convoluted system, but so is the sport.
