If today's goalies are so much better than the 80s, give them the same sized equipment - they can even keep the lighter stuff just make it the same size as the 80s - then, let's see where they really stand. I suspect a .900 save percentage will be much harder to achieve and hockey will become much more entertaining.
Exactly. Personally I'd go even further and ban the trap which has no other purpose than to hold the score down for both teams, and I'd call penalties with the same frequency as the '80s.
