The NHL calculates standings with 2 points for any win, regulation or OT, and 1 point for an OT/Shootout Loss, and that's it in terms of special scoring. That option, as well as the NFL/ZHL Season 1 model (standing determined by wins, no "points" for Overtime/Shootout) were both discussed at the pre-season owners meeting. The decision to use the KHL model, where more points are given for a regulation win than an overtime/shootout win, but teams are still rewarded for getting as far as overtime before losing, was the model that the owners liked best. As I recall, actually, the model was voted in pretty much unanimously.
I like the KHL model we've been using. I like that teams get something for staying in the game longer, even if they end up losing. I'm a die hard hockey fan, and the NHL rewards teams for making it to overtime before they lose, too, so it's in line with the way the sport's done in 'merica. I like the KHL's twist on that idea, though, in that a team doesn't get as much for winning in OT/shootout as they do for winning in regulation. It gives teams a reason to push for a win in regulation, rather than playing it safe in a close game to make sure they at least get a point.
That said, even with the KHL model, I could probably have cleaned up the standings board a bit and made it a little easier to digest. It's a learning experience
