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.
That's the NHL's reason for adding the loser point. As much as I hate it, it makes sense.
