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 scoring chances. 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.
