My suggestions for putting more flow(offense) into the game.

You'd have to compensate owners somehow for the loss of revenue in suggestion #1. If nothing else they'll resort to increasing ticket prices.
As for #2, I'm against increasing the size of the nets. I feel this is the wrong approach to adding excitement to the game. It's not so much the lack of scoring that's the problem IMHO, but the lack of quality
. Increasing the size of the nets would make it easier to score, true, but it would mostly mean a few more low-percentage shots going in. OTOH, I believe that if you give some of the skilled forwards today the time and space to make a play, they can score on the current net, despite the tremendous goaltending equipment. It's just that there's very few such chances in the NHL these days.
Adding a few inches of net is a band-aid solution rather than attacking the root cause of the problem.
