from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,
For those who have labored through my hockey blogs at ESPN.com since September 2008, you know this issue is near and dear to my heart.
I’ve been a proponent of a 3-2-1 points system for years, as in three points for a 60-minute win, two points for an overtime/shootout victory and one point for an OT/SO loss.
As it turns out, Yzerman also feels that way.
“We switched to 4-on-4 overtime years ago which is entertaining, I have no problem with that,” Yzerman said. “The shootout is a roll of the dice, it doesn’t prove who the better team is. I just think, let’s reward teams that win in 60 minutes.”
But, and you knew it was coming ...
“But I don’t think it has much support around the league,” Yzerman said.
