Get rid of the shootout altogether, no point for losing in overtime, problem solved. Not sure why they refuse to go that route. Teams will play to win if they don't get anything. There's no reason to treat a loss in overtime as a half win
So, you are suggesting going back to potentially ending with ties or extending overtime until someone wins? Your comment isn't clear. If it is the former, your suggestion that teams will play to win likely wrong. In that scenario, teams will play not to lose so they can keep that single point from a tie.
