Ties are the worst
I didn't mind ties...depending on how any given tie came about, quite a few of them felt like wins and losses, while others truly felt like games where both teams played each other just about even for 65 minutes.
I hate the shootout, and the fact that a victory is actually awarded for it, especially when there's not much rhyme or reason as to why one team is good at it and another isn't. But at least the Devils have been the best at it since its implementation. If the Devils were as bad in them as Florida (30-54 all-time), we'd be hearing a lot more complaints about how unfair the shootout is.
