Bettman says current point system ‘working extraordinarily well’

Remember how Gary Bettman said fans weren’t really interested in a CapGeek-style website?

Well, the commish is saying the same thing about a revised points system, i.e. three points for a win as opposed to the current two, or something along those lines.

“The media debates it a lot, but we don’t get a lot of negative feedback from fans,” Bettman told ESPN’s Craig Custance. “In fact, when you see the way the races played out and the importance of every game in the regular season, there are teams that wish they had a couple of points from October and November they would have liked to have down the stretch. The point system is working extraordinarily well.”

I wrote about a revamped points system here, but assuming you’re a fan you’re probably not interested in reading about it, so don’t bother.
