First of all, 7-5 was never a low scoring game in any era of hockey. Secondly, no one's looking for lacrosse-type scoring frequency. The flow of the game is stunted, and the scoring chances are down. I could care less what the score is in the game, as long as the chances are there and the game is fast paced. Scoring will obviously rise as chances do, however if a goalie stands on his head like Giguere did last playoffs, theres nothing boring about that. Bottom line is that the league's most talented players need to be able to use their talent, and right now they're not. I still feel that the solution is in large part in the hands of the officials, simply calling the game as its listed in the rule-book. However, if they're unable to do that, Selanne's suggestion of the widening of the lines (actually its Bobby Smith's plan, isn't it?), decreasing size of goalie equipment, or whatever other plans people come up with to improve the game should be looked at.
