OT should be sudden death.
Ideally they wouldn't implement it like that.
In the regular season they would play one seven and a half minute quarter. If the score is still tied after that quarter the game end's an the result is a tie.
In the playoffs if the score is still tied after the 5th they would play a 6th quarter, and a sudden death 7th quarter if needed.
The OT rules right now are fair, and I don't have a huge problem with them. I just think this would be a better solution.
