Default OVERTIME POINTS

OVERTIME POINTS

Most hockey purist would likely agree - the true result of a regular season hockey game is after 60 minutes.

That 5 minute overtime is nothing more than an entertainment gimmick Ė used solely to award one team an extra point. Which is pointless !

The fact that 3 on 3 hockey is used to decide the outcome Ė which you never see otherwise Ė does not mean you won or lost.

Itís completely ridiculous to attach a win or loss to a teamís Win/Loss record after a game of shinney!

What we see in OT is not indicative of the teams play in regulation time nor does it decide who the better team was that particular night.

As RSJ and ff51 mentioned, the proper way to end a hockey game is: 2 pts for W, 1 pt. for T, 0 pts for L .

If that were the case, here are the current Eastern Conference Standings: The Ice Dogs would still be doing very well in comparison to the other teams in the conference.

1 Hamilton 19W 7L 8T =46

2 Barrie 18W 10L 5T =41

3 Kingston 13W 10L 10T =36

4 Niagara 14W 13L 7T =35

5 Oshawa 14W 17L 3T =31

6 Peterborough 11W 17L 6T =28

7 North Bay 11W 18L 5T =27

8 Ottawa 9W 16L 9T =27

9 Mississauga 11W 20L 3T =25

10 Sudbury 8W 19L 7T =22



FYI: Ottawa would drop 3 spots in the standing.

And for playoffs, a full period of 4 on 4 sudden death?

If the traditional scoring system was used, here are the Western Conference Standings:

1 SSM 22W 3L 7T =51
2 Sarnia 21W 8L 6T =48
3 Kitchener 18W 11L 5T =41
4 Windsor 15W 11L 6T =36
5 Saginaw 14W 12L 6T = 34
6 Guelph 12W 13L 8T = 32
7 London 12W 14L 8T = 32
8 Owen Sound 10W 13L 9T = 29
9 Erie 8W 17L 9T = 25
10 Flint 6W 20L 7T = 19

• Sarnia really closes the gap on SSM.
• London takes a significant hit in wins and points.

Several thought the Ice Dogs were the beneficiary of this current scoring system, however, that is really not the case! Using the traditional method of scoring games, the Ice Dogs would be in sole possession of 8th Ė and only a single point out of a share for 6th.

OHL STANDINGS
1 SSM 22W 3L 7T =51
2 Sarnia 21W 8L 6T =48
3 Hamilton 19W 7L 8T 46
4 Kitchener 18W 11L 5T =41
5 Barrie 18W 10L 5T = 41
6 Windsor 15W 11L 6T =36
7 Kingston 13W 10L 10T =36
8 Niagara 14W 13L 7T =35
9 Saginaw 14W 12L 6T = 34
10 Guelph 12W 13L 8T = 32

What about the 3 win, 2 win/tie, 1 lose/tie option?

Will never happen because of the history books.

NHL has said as much.

Women's hockey, at least on the University level, is trying the 3, 2, 1 format. They can because of the lack of history. Apparently.

Personally, I prefer the 2 pts for win, 1 pt. for tie, 0 pts for lose in hockey, however, soccer has it right. Regular season games: After 90 minutes, 3 points for a win, 1 for a tie and 0 for a loss.

I’m probably in the minority but I’d rather see a winner than have a tie but I’d change that if they dumped the shootout for 5 more minutes of 3 on 3 I like the 3 point system though 3 for a win 2 for OT win 1 for OT loss or tie if I got my OT wish 0 for regulation L

Iíd rather just have a winner and a loser. Donít like ties.

If you win, 2 points. I donít care if itís regulation, OT or a shootout. Zero, zilch, nada if you lose. Stop with participation ribbons. You want points? Then win the game.

If they want to make the games more entertaining I would suggest 3 points for regulation win and 2 for an overtime or shootout win. Zero for the loser. You'd have coaches playing to win instead of playing ultra conservative.
