Seems these days the rivalries are more of a chess match then a slug-fest (spirited game).
I agree in some ways. Too many times teams want to get to overtime to get that single point. If they are going to have three points available in games that go to OT (two for the winner and one for the loser), they should give all three points to the team that wins in regulation. I think teams would try harder to win in regulation and those chess match type games would get more exciting.
Yeah, that’s what most leagues do. 3 pts for a regulation win, 2 pts for ot or so win, 1 pt for ot or so loss, 0 pts for a regulation loss.
Whatever you do, always give 100 %!

I don't want to change it because it's worked well but the old school hockey mentality part of me hates playing for the tie.

I also like the system where the team finishing last gets demoted and replaced with a team from the second tier.
That way you eliminate the possibility of tanking on purpose. Being demoted is hell. Takes away most of the teams revenue, so nobody wants to end up last, and the teams at the bottom of the standings are fighting for their lives.

damn whats going on in AZ??
Chayka was going to go into the bubble with the Coyotes as late as last Thursday, but after they couldn’t reach an agreement on a “transition plan,” Chayka terminated his contract on Friday.
Hayka: I love our players, coaches, staff and fans and I very much wish I could be with the team in Edmonton. Sadly, the situation created by ownership made that an impossibility.

“That’s all I intend to say on this matter for now. A fuller, more detailed explanation may be necessary in the near future.”
One source said that Chayka asked for permission to pursue another opportunity that wasn’t with another NHL team and that six weeks ago he asked for his release. Another source said that is not true.

“John Chayka is a liar and a quitter,” the source said.

The source said that another team approached the Coyotes and Chayka told ownership that he’d been allowed to talk to other teams in the past. Ownership was upset and said that now isn’t the time.

“There’s this narrative that members of this organization started to take job functions away from John like talking to players and agents, but the reality is John abandoned the organization,” the source said.

The Edmonton Oilers will have to surrender a third-round pick to the Calgary Flames after all.

The NHL ruled the Oilers must transfer either their 2020 or 2021 third-rounder to Calgary to complete last summer's James Neal-Milan Lucic deal, the Flames announced Friday.

Edmonton will have until the third round of the 2020 draft to make its decision.

Nah. Just have the team that gets promoted kick in $650 million, like the McKrakens just did. That will sort out who is serious and who just wants a free trip to the NHL.
The Cup is soooooo ours!!!!!!!

I'm with you Per. Gives the NHL a way to expand and for teams that struggle to downgrade their talent without losing their franchise. It would provide a means for Kansas City, Quebec and others to have franchises without diluting the player base. There are financial issues you would need to work through (i.e. Seattle and Vegas would have a reasonable greivance, but you could do things like require funds to be put in escrow for x period in the event of promotion, you could freeze the junior league for five years before allowing the promotion playoffs, etc.

And most of all, we would all enjoy the meldown of Edmonton and the Leaves as they get demoted.

Oh yes! The immense pleasure in seeing a hated rival being demoted...! :D

Watching the fans break down and cry in the stands on live TV.

It’s beautiful. :)

Got nothing to do with that. It just isn’t feasible here. There’s no 2nd division, the AHL is a feeder league. The logistics of setting up something like English Premier League here would be staggering. It will never happen..
