The problem, in my opinion, is that it's now a rarity to see a pretty goal. Most of them are scored by mad scrambles with everyone diving headfirst into the crease or shots from a distances that bounce off sticks/butts/teeth. It feels like half the time, I have no idea who even scored the goal.
Make the nets bigger and allow the skill of a good shot back into the game. I can't even really tell you anymore who are the great shots in the league. We dont' get to see Hull/Shanny/Messier,etc. picking corners anymore.
Don't think I ever said those two suggestions fixed anything.
Weird but I seem to remember quite a few snipes last year. Stamkos didn't score many garbage goals, neither did Ovechkin.
