The Nagano games featured some of the best games ever.
it contained the best players in the world... try diluting the talent level by several folds. it also featured some of the lowest hitting ever in professional hockey. it could also boast low scoring and little stickwork as long passes were used in favor.

When skilled players have more space, they can use their skills and speed to create havoc.
It also eliminates many forms of the trap, which IS killing hockey.
on the contrary. more space, less skill needed. and you are very incorrect in saying it eliminates the trap. watch some European hockey and in some places the trap is a bigger problem than it is here.
