if it was a point for tying then the game would end in a tie.
The flaw in the system is because the NHL never implemented a standard for what a game is worth. The league used to value every game at 2 points. When they changed the system they made some games worth more than others.
They did this on purpose to create parity. But I don't like how it affect competitive balance.
If you are going to add extra value to a game in the form of an extra point it should be awarded for winning.
It is. You get a point for WINNING the gimmick. You get a point for TYING the hockey game.
