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.
IMHO bigger surface require higher level of skills not lower. Thats why Russian and European draftees are often better stickhandlers , creative players etc.
As opposed to larger surface smaller one allows less skilled and slow players with size be effective.
