Get rid of the points all together. Every game has a winner and loser, so just go back to tracking wins and loses. So simple.......


What do you do about games that are tied after 60 minutes?  Regular season games can't be allowed to go into triple-overtime, for many reasons.  I do like having the lengthy overtimes being something that is special to the playoffs.

Fights are exciting and all, but I could live without them.  I play hockey, and I have ZERO desire to fight.  I was involved in a scrum on Sunday and did what I minimally needed to do to protect my teammates without escalating the situation.  I know it's a little different between my s***ty D-League and the NHL, but fighting just seems like it's a part of tradition, but not a needed element for hockey.


As to low scoring, I like that.  I love 1-0 and 2-1 games.


If I could make any changes to hockey I would:


Switch to a three-point system, Win = 3 points, Loss = 0 points, Overtime/shootout win = 2 points, overtime/shootout loss = 1 point

Change overtime so that there are less shoutouts (make it longer, go down to three on three after a while, etc...)


I just really hate all the "loser points" that are generated in the games that go to overtime and shootout.  It's unfair that extra points are generated in these games.

Real fans cheer for the Wings.  They want all the players to do well.  They're allowed to get frustrated when players aren't good enough.  They'll allowed to be boastful when they've got a superstar.


Big E. used to annoy the hell out of me, and I loathed him.  I complained about him, wanted him traded, etc...  But when he'd score, make a great play, or drop the gloves for us, I'd cheer him on, because he's a Red Wing, and I am a fan.


Part of the fun is caring.  It's why I can't watch most sports games where a Detroit team isn't playing, because I simply need to be invested for it to be entertaining.
