5 Goals = 1 Point In The Standings

Since the league is looking for a way to increase offense and make the game more exciting, why not start rewarding teams that score lots of goals ?

I say they should implement a system where your Goals For contributes to your point standings, this way the low scoring, trapping teams may still not make the playoffs even though they win games.

Nothing is changed in the game, so the purists and players are kept happy, its just the if you want to move up in the standings, offense is going to start being key.

Umm... that would kill the Wild.

I don't think that's ever going to happen.

There are 12 teams that have scored less than the Wild this year. Pellerin isn't leading Minnesota in scoring, by the way.

Oiler94, instead of NJ Pittsburgh would be the one with the least amount of goals- 36 goals in 19 games.

Overall rankings don't make a difference.

New Jersey could be leading the league in goals, but unless they occasionally score five in a game, they don't benefit.

I dont follow NJ closely, but it seems that if the total # is high there is a chance that per game number is also higher.

No No, its cumulative.

its your Total Goals For during the season,

if you have 50 goals in 15 games, and you've won 10 games and lost 5, your points would be 20+10 = 30pts.

Did i misunderstand the concept?
If NJ would be leading the league in goals, wouldn't that make their goals per game # higher than that of other teams, thus benefitting them?

In wins yes, but it doesn't matter if they keep scoring 4 goals a game.

Maybe 5 goals a point is too small. Maybe 10 or 20 goals a game?

That would add about 20-30 points to each team's point total a year... and would certainly benefit the high scoring teams, but not so much that the low-scoring teams are completely screwed.

Does that mean mandatory retirement for goaltenders, defensemen and defensive forwards?

Uh, no -- you still have to play well defensively (strong backchecking and good positioning)-- you still have to win. however -- it will eliminate teams from depending on winning 1-2 / 1-0 night after night, and would put the onus on offensive play, jumping in on the rush, and generally making the game faster and more exciting.

The point is not about the freaking Devil's, the point is making the league more exciting.

I don't know about you, but I miss the 80's and early 90's with end-to-end action and lots of goals.

Well, I was joking. Myself, I would rather see a more realistic rule change such as the elimination of the red line.

Good luck selling that to the purists.

And didn't they do that in the AHL / OHL ? It did increase goals, but after a while coaches learned how to get around it and you end up in the same situation.

You think your idea has a better chance with the purists? I highly doubt that.

It doesn't change the game play or rules, with the exception of standings seeding.

Yeah that is pretty freaking Radical if you ask me....

How about 1 point for a win...

no points for a loss ..no points for a tie if you score less then 4 goals

2 points if you win and you score atleast 4...

1 point for a Tie if you score atleast 4
