Don't know why losing in the shootout is so much of a crime compared to winning in one if you think it's such a gimmick.
Argumentative as usual. You don't get the extra point for keeping a game tied for 65 minutes though, do you? You get it for just winning a short shootout.
Sure, you don't lose but you don't win either. Having a situation where 65 minutes of hard, honest hockey is worth the same as 3 shots at the end is farcical and it cheapens genuine points.
Hell, look at the Jets. They've only legitimately beat 5 teams this season and are well above us.
