I have thought of a different way to do point percentage calculations. You could add up the total points available in games played and add up points earned. You would then divide points available by points earned.

Points available = total points given out in games, regulation game = 2, ot or so = 3
Points earned = 0, 1 or 2

regulation game: winner = 2/2, loser = 0/2
So or ot game: winner = 2/3, loser = 1/3 BUT you would have to make each game worth the same so you would have to make the winner 1.33/2 and the loser 0.67/2

Example: team is 10-5-4 with 7 so/ot wins

They earn 3x2pts for regulation wins
They earn 7x1.33pts for so/ot wins
They earn 4x0.67pts for so/ot losses
They earn 0 pts for regulation losses

In total they have earned 17.99 pts out of 38 with a point percentage of .473

Example: team is 10-5-4 with 1 so/ot win

They earn 9x2pts for regulation wins
They earn 1x1.33pts for so/ot wins
They earn 4x0.67pts for so/ot losses
They earn 0pts for regulation losses

In total they have earned 22.01 out of 38 with a point percentage of .579

Hopefully you guys understand my system. It basically gives teams 2/3 of a win for extra time victories and teams 1/3 of a win for losing in extra time. Teams need to be penalized in some sort of way for not winning in regulation and for giving their opponents a point. 2 identical records yet one is above .500 and one is below.
