This. But what if the NHL went to 1 on 1 permanently. NHL could be a 150 team league, and the player association wouldn't have to worry about it. NHL could get more revenues because there would be more active franchises. Five times more jobs for goalies as well, and their value in the game would rise to a new level. And still you could be sure that the scoring would increase massively.
