An amendment

This is probably a tiresome rant, but I'd like to take the opportunity to point out that last night was a perfect example of why the shootout is moronic. This was clearly a game that deserved to end 2-2, and we would have felt the exact same as we did, so would the Preds. We would have been disappointed at not winning a game at home where we had the chances to put it away, and Nashville would have been quite pleased with a point on the road in a tough environment. No one would have felt, incomplete? Is that the word? We'll use it. Give us some fucking credit, Bettman. We're adults, we can handle a draw.

I'm OK with ties, OR having simple wins and losses where the loser in OT/SO gets nothing. This "point for an OT/SO loss" is a horrible compromise. Can you imagine walking up to an NFL, NBA, or MLB fan and telling him that his sport really needs to give half credit to overtime losers?
