I could care less about the overall picture because IMO over the course of an 82 game season.. the best teams get in 99% of the time.
I'd be curious if any of the other point systems would drastically change many of the playoff teams/seeding over the last few years..
I'd prefer a point system that doesn't lead to a dull last few minutes at the end of a third period that's tied. No reason to take any chances because you're going to get a point if you just sit back.. then you can try for another few minutes in OT before sitting back again and waiting for the SO.
