    Not a fan of the shootout either.  I always liked the idea of 3 points for a regulation win, 2 points for an OT win, 1 point for an OT loss, and 1 point each for a tie.

    Re: Shootout

    I don't think anyone should get a point for losing.

    2 points for a win.

    1 point for a shoot out win.

    That's all.

    It's getting downright embarassing as a fan to see this crap.  It's gotten to the point this year that I just leave the room when a shootout comes on because it's just total crap to watch.  I'll come back later to find out who gets credit for the win.

    I never had a problem with a hard fought tie.Shoot-outs are awful and I'll never be convinced otherwise.

    Shootout's are a joke but if the B's had (and I hate to say it) Kessel we would all be thinking a bit different.......

    Kessel is no better than 50% so it's not like he's any better at it than Seguin.

    Nope... I've despised the shootouts from day 1 and my opinion hasn't changed.

    I HATE ties. I think the amount of money we pay as fans. We should always at least walk away with a winner. I'd much rather see a 5 minute 4 on 4 & a 10 minute 3 on 3. Then a shoot-out. Also as NAS says. 2pts for the win within game play, 1 point for a shoot-out win & a ZERO for losing.

    For years there was nothing wrong with the tie.It was a big deal when you were able to score with the extra attacker so that you not only eked out a point,but also snatched one away from the opposition.2 points are all that should be up for grabs in any one game.Eventually there will be a team miss the playoffs with more than 100 points due to a ridiculous number of OT and shoot-out losses.

    Re: Shootout

    I really dont think there should be a pity point for getting to OT. 2 for winning and thats it. This would greatly hurt the B's but IMO its the only thing that makes sense. I dont like the 1pt pity point.

    Dez? Ties are gone forever my friend. The league wants parody & they feel with ties that can't happen.

    I know they aren't coming back but that doesn't mean they should've left in the first place.Wouldn't ties lead to parity  more than wins for one or the other?

    I was going to let it go, Book, but since you started...

    The NHL is a parody.

    Re: Shootout

    I think one of the reason's we all love playoff hockey is sudden death OT. Both basketball and baseball play until there's a winner, as does CFL - no bonus points for losers. I can't stand shootouts - whether they're in hockey or soccer.

    [QUOTE]Shootouts are downright ridiculous.  Keep the 5 minute OT and leave it at that.  A tie is a tie. If you want to cut down on ties : have team "A" play 5 on 4 for 2 minutes in OT; then Team "B" gets a 2 minute 5 on 4 to answer.  End of game.

    lmao with the B's PP they would lose every OT game shhhhh.

    Re: Shootout

    No disrespect intended to nightmare...sadly, I think he was exactly right.  The NHL keeps the shootout because it wants parody, not hockey.

    As for not letting it go, well, as with the long and involved process of removing the sequins from this board, spelling mistakes are one thing, but when you get another (often hilarious) word as a result, I can't resist.

    I've been told I'm a bad influence for far worse things than this....

    I still like Ken Holland's progressive suggestion seven minute overtime's with the last three minutes 3 on 3 (Me thinks that is what the scenario is) that would eliminate the shootout.

    The NHL doesn't want ties and they won't go back to them.

    I still believe there should be only 2 points up for grabs regardless if you win in regulation, OT or the shootout. A loss should not result in a point.
