Yea, but last playoffs was one of the worst in recent memory as far as excitement goes. Besides the 1st round, the rest of the playoffs was an absolute bore.

I'm not saying I want to go back to 10-7 games, but I just want to see some shots from the point that cleanly beat a goalie. If a goalie is covering an angle, it's almost impossible for a shooter to beat him, unless it gets deflected or he's screened.

The average size of an NHL goalie is now around 6ft 3, 6 ft 4. 20/30 years ago, it was 5ft10. Plus the goalie equipment is much larger.

Make the nets bigger to compensate, pretty easy solution if you ask me.
