Three Point Stupidity

I am not a fan of the three point game at all, never have been. I think it is a stupid reward for teams being able to ‘make it’ into overtime. I say it like that because when it is crunch time, a lot of teams just shut it down for the final five minutes of play because they think they have a better chance at winning in overtime or the shootout. For all my hate towards it, this year I am thanking it. The Wings would be in a much different situation if there were no three point game. Here is how the West would look:

  Team W L PTS
1 San Jose 39 20 78
2 Chicago 39 20 78
3 Vancouver 35 23 70
4 Phoenix 36 24 72
5 LA 36 23 72
6 Colorado 33 25 66
7 Nashville 31 27 62
8 Minnesota 29 29 58
9 Calgary 29 31 58
10 Anaheim 28 31 56
11 Detroit 27 32 54
12 Dallas 26 33 52
13 St. Louis 26 34 52
14 Columbus 24 36 48
15 Edmonton 18 40 36
