The purist complaints would be faint, everyone will see that it's better to call it a night after 9 innings, just split the points.

In a 162 game season, not every game needs to have a winner. It's not unsatisfying to have a tie, it's just 1 part of a 162 piece puzzle. Hockey's golden age was when teams would each get 1 point for a tie. Again, it isn't a big deal at all. Extras can come back in October.
See, that's a rule change I would hate. It changes the tenor of the game.
