Defense doesn't win, it just helps you not to lose. Offense is what wins. Prove positive of this is there is no winner in a 0-0 game, and no offense, but there is plenty of defense.
What about using the European Football rules for wins and ties? Use three points for a win and one point for a tie. That would make wins much more important than ties and get rid of overtime.
Example of the Pacific Division:
2ptW 3ptW LA: 39 55 SJ: 39 52 Dal: 36 52 Phx: 34 45 Ana: 31 42
