I agree that this should be a last resort, but if that's what is necessary to increase scoring, then go for it!

Scoring is at a good pace right now. Make the nets bigger and we're gonna start seeing 10-7 games. That would suck IMO. ...though Malkin would have about 15 more goals this season.

I think play has been entertaining since they started enforcing the rules. You don't need a ton of goals to have good hockey.

I'd still like to see goalie pads/equipment return to the early 80's sizes, but making the nets bigger is a bad, bad idea.

I agree, just enough to cover the leg, not another couple inches on each side.

all in all, i actually like the product now, not too much, not too little.

the game can be nerve-wracking enough when trying to preserve a 1 goal lead late in the game... no need to increase the size of the net!

if they did, what would they do?

gotta keep the 2/3 ratio... so 6 feet 3/5 inch by 4 feet 2/5 inch?
