That's only because of the points system.

Because you can't make up separate games to fit your argument. When teams show up to the arena they play one game.

Yeah OT has slightly different rules, but sudden death in itself is a different rule. Should we ban OT altogether then?

It shouldn't be. Soccer does everything backwards. It's popular because of the aesthetic of the game. It's a wonderful sport at its core. They call it "the beautiful game" for a reason.

That being said, the systems used in soccer are generally god awful and shouldn't be a model for the NHL. Unless of course you'd like to see aggregate scoring used in the NHL playoffs.

No in soccer a win is 3 points and a tie is 1 each. So just like in Hockey some games are 3 some games are 2. Same ****.
