Your 10 minutes of 4 on 4 overtime idea misses the mark. If 1 point is awarded to both teams when they make it to the shootout and 0 points if for an overtime loss, then it's obviously going to lead to more shootouts because each team is going to play conservative in overtime to make sure they gain 1 point. That is the whole point of giving the teams 1 point for making it to overtime, so they can take more offensive risks because they have nothing to lose after already securing the 1 point. Secondly, have you ever seen a 3 on 3 in overtime? There is a tremendous amount of scoring chances and it actually involves the whole team working together, not a bonifide skills competition to decide the outcome. Ken Holland is a smart guy in case some people haven't notice, you guys should listen up!
