The shootout is absolute kaka, but it's likely here to stay. The media and hockey noobs love it.
I could go with that scoring system - its a bit similar to soccer (3pts for a win, 1 for a tie, 0 for a loss). I'll have to admit, that I do like the shootout though, although I think an extra 5 minute period of 3-on-3 OT would be equally as awesome.
