What the NHL Standings Should Like

It’s time for the NHL to change the points system.  The idea that games that end in regulation are worth two points, and games that go to OT or a shootout are worth three makes no sense.  I made a quick Google Sheet showing what I think the NHL should do.

  • A regulation win is worth 3 points
  • An OT or shootout win is worth 2 points
  • An OT or shootout loss is worth 1 point

This means that each game is worth three points, and would reward teams for winning in regulation. Here is what the Eastern Conference standings would like like as of games played through 1/3/2017.
