Hockey is meant to be 60 minutes, and if you get through that in the regular season without losing then you deserve something. The fact the League is desperate to define a winner in every game shouldn't punish teams that don't lose in regulation. It just shouldn't reward those who win in OT/SO equally to those who get the job done in regulation.
This. Well said, Thank you.
