No points for losers

Brian Holland, Belle River, Ont.

I don't know why there's so much debate over the point system. Here's an idea for next year: you don't get any points for losing a game. Weird concept, I know.

How about two points for a win in regulation, one point for a win in overtime or shootout and no points for not winning the game.

This might give teams incentive to finish teams off rather than hold on for a shootout loss and say, "oh well".

Maybe teams would stop making the playoffs by losing 10 to 20 games, only because they're in extra time.
