It will be a disgrace if the NHL ever makes shootout losses cost zero points. The shootout has nothing to do with the game. The fact that you get points for shootout wins is bad enough. They are ties in my book. It was a tie when the real game was played.

Overtime losses still result in gaining a point. That is why it is not considered a loss.

We are 8-8-2.

End of the story.
Having a different point of view isn't making your own rules. The first thing looked at when trying to make the playoffs is the teams point total. If you went to OT in every game you'd get 82 pts out of a potential 164 even if you lost them all. That's half of 164 or, funnily enough, .500. Just change what column you pay attention too...

I think they need to go to a 3 point regulation win already.

Agreed. If they aren't going to bring back ties, which would be my preference (and they aren't), the 3 point regulation win is the only reasonable option.

With Callahan going, Hagelin going, and Stepan not looking completely useless, I think we will be OK once these guys get back. We were starting to look OK before they went down. I think it's no coincidence we look bad now.

Our team has been blessed for the most part injury wise since the lockout.

I think the league prefers overtime games though... more broadcasting time, more prolonged viewers and therefore higher TV ratings... You're essentially telling teams that "If you want the max amount of points, don't go to OT", when in reality we know the league sees this as a money grab, and free exposure... why would they essentially start telling teams to avoid overtime to get more points?

Just food for thought

Absolutely this. With Nash playing we win at least one of the games we lost while he was out, and McD is always a blessing. With the depth going now it's only a matter of time before Gabby gets going again. Losing Nash when we did was probably the worst possible timing, because the team couldve really started to click and gain confidence. Here's hoping bringing back two of our best players does what it should do- make us a better team.

I had NHL radio on in my truck before and Glenn Healy "implied" that Nashs injury occurred from an elbow to the head from Milan Lucic.

I did not hear of this specific inference that this was the reason for Rick being out till today.

3 points for a ROW
2 points for a SO win
1 point for OT/SO loss

Hope they all are ready to go, certainly need them.

No more Gilroy-Bickel please. Better to role with two four defensemen, juniorhockeystyle!

I'd rather deter teams from playing for the shootout and considering ROW is a playoff tiebreaker have ROW 3 pts, SO win 2 pts, OTL or SO Loss 1 pt, Reg Loss 0 pts.
