What's interesting is that soccer also seemed to me headed that way somewhat, and suddenly Barcelona & Spain arrived and changed everything. Though it's hard to see a comparable phenomenon come about in hockey..
There are too few teams that have real creativity in hockey anymore. The ice should be enlarged, the game is far more fun to watch on the big ice. Hits are overrated. Skill/passing is more thrilling IMO.
