I think every single team president and owner would want just that. They may never admit it publically and praise defensive play, but they all know fans love scoring and winning. If you can score 5+ goals a night and win ~60% of the time it would be an owners dream come true. The only people who love the defensive showdowns are goalies and coaches. Give me a good ol' 80s style 8-6 shootout (or a no-defense series like this last Pit/Philly one) over another boring 2-0 or 3-1 game. The NHL would be smart to go back to the 80s model of no-defense and lots of fighting. The fans, especially casual ones, love that junk and it's what will grow the sport more than anything.
