If we do in fact play the 04/05 season, there is talk about how it would be too tight for teams to compete to make the playoffs. But I had an idea.. I think this was already talked about just before the lockout began.. But what if they made wins worth 3 points, and ties (if there are any) stay 1 point? It would really help separate a win from a tie, and even an overtime loss, if they decide to stick with the 1 point for an OT loss.
