Bring back the tie game

Coach Nikota at PPP has some sane suggestions for the GM's meeting.  Go read them.  For the most part I agree in spades.

I'd quibble with dealing with the tie game thing -- my latest crazy idea would be to bring back the tie game, but punish teams for not settling things before overtime, going to a modified three point system: a regulation win is worth three, a tie is worth nothing, and an overtime win is worth two. Overtime would still be five minutes of four-on-four.  That gives everyone an incentive to play hard at the end of the third and in overtime, because if you coast, you get -- nothing.  Crazy, huh?
