I have been wanting two rule changes for some time: 1. If you commit a penalty in overtime and it rolls over to shootout you should not be able to participate in the shootout. If it goes through all players and still at a tie, that penalty should come into play and automatically lose the game if you go through that many rounds. 2. Every game in the season should be worth the same total of points between two teams. Sick of playing for overtime to gaurantee a point. All games worth 3 points Win in Regulation 3 Points Loss in Regulation 0 Points OTL = 1 Point Win in Overtime or Shootout = 2 Points That way every game is equal and I think you would see more teams in for the dance. I have been wanting to put a spreadsheet together of previous standings and what that would mean for playoff implications with this point system instead of the every game being worth 2 or 3 points.
