Take away the Shootout Point

As the Caps look to jockey for playoff position, (or not) points are all that matters. But for those of us who dont like the free point in OT, and devalue winning a skills competition to climb the standings....

Here is the true indicator of hockey success thus far. Wins and OT Wins

1)NYR - 30

2)Philly - 29

3) Boston - 28

4) Washington 27

5) Toronto 25

6) Jets 23

7) Pittsburgh 22

8) Ottawa 22

9) Devils - 22

The point is, shootouts must be won to get into good playoff position...but does it really matter come playoff time?
