Absolutely WRONG. Scoring chances = excitement. You could make the nets 30' x 60' resulting in double-digit goals every game and it's going to be unbearably awful to watch.
Scoring chances = excitement
A greater conversion rate on scoring chances = even more excitement
Goalies need to get worse. Half the saves people drool over seem to be the result of pretty basic technique or marshmallowism
And that's not going to happen any time soon. Over the past 35-40 years, goaltenders have transformed from "the guy on the team who wasn't in good enough shape to play out" to perhaps the most athletic individuals in hockey.
I disagree with goalies being the guy "not good enough shape". Goalies from previous time periods were very in shape... those pads got heavy.. real heavy... and they had to rely on actually moving their legs and arms instead of just going down into a butterfly position.
