So the NHL is contemplating using their newfangled nets in pre-season games. Hey, anything that makes the game better should be welcomed with open arms.

The new nets are shallower, have a clear plastic strip along the top and built-in high definition cameras to make goal reviews easier, and has thinner mesh.

Cool.

The problem is the changes the NHL are proposing do not address the real problem facing the league: a lack of goal-scoring. Sportsnet.ca's Michael Grange addresses the issue in his latest column, suggesting goaltenders, with few exceptions, are bigger than ever. The league has addressed the size of goalie equipment the past few years, but it seems skaters now see less net than ever before.

The answer to more goals is quite simple and not exactly new: Make the damn nets bigger.
