Atleast there will be no more top seeds per division next year. Caps should not be in 3rd place.
The problem isn't the "loser" point itself. You deserve a point for the tie in real hockey and should not get nothing for losing in a gimmick like the shootout. The problem is, that these games are worth more than real wins. Actually winning by playing hockey has to be worth more than winning the shootout or losing it twice. Three point games are the obvious solution, but the NHL will never adopt it as the current system keeps the playoff race tight. Exhibit A: The 2013 Debbies
