They should have gotten rid of Iggy and Kipper when they had better value and started the re-build 2 years ago, but because they were "in the mix" with all these loser points.

The NHL knows this system is wrong, along with how the shootout is. Why else is the ROW column is there now? The NHL is so backwards in this, and it actually ruins the integrity of the game

Why is the NFL so successful, even down the stretch? Only 6 spots in each conference are given out of 16 teams, but there is no gimmick with their league.
One way or another each game should have the same number of points on the table... If the NHL wants to keep the SO every game should be worth 3 points... Some games worth 2 points and others 3 points is not consistent.
