Done deal and I am all in.. Oh. how we long for the good old days.... LOL again
Exactly, and the game ends in a tie. The only time you need to do anything different is for the last team to qualify for the playoffs, and there are already provisions for tie breakers or a single elimination game.

Or, if we would like to see games that are tied in the final minutes of games, award 3 points for a regulation win. That would make the final minutes a lot more interesting than watching teams just play not to lose toward the end of regulation time.
2 points for overtime win and 1 point for a loss.

2 points for overtime win and 1 point for a loss.
No points for a loss. (give them a participation ribbon)
1 point for a tie.
2 points for an OT win.
3 points for a regulation win.

Play 10 minutes of real 5 on 5 hockey. 10 minutes in junior hockey is a long time for no goals to be scored. As much as I hate ties, after 70 minutes during the regular season, call it a tie.

I completely agree with the above and I would do it this way in junior and the pros

What's wrong with a point each for a tie and no OT plus never having a shoot out?

Nothing wrong with a point each for a tie but the paying costumers want to see a winner and a loser (no ties)

Wait a generation 3 points for the 1st winner, 2 points to the 2nd winner and a point for any passing snowflake who was offended.

I strongly disagree with this statement... id rather see a tie than see a goalie lose in a shoot out after playing an amazing game and i despise a team winning or losing a gold medal or any kind of championship game by way of shoot out

Oh Id rather see a tie then see a shootout but Id also rather see them play 10 minutes of 3 on 3 than just say you only get 3 periods then its a tie and zero OT and I think a majority of hockey fans would as well

If the overtime is not the exact same game as regulation time - like MLB, NBA and NFL does - than leave it a tie.
