The Mesh In The New Nets Is Way Too Tight

Easy topic to troll the OP on but I agree with him. I hate the tightly wound nets. Especially when you're at a game.
Unless you sit at dead center ice, you generally don't have the best view of the net on the opposite side from you. It was always real easy to see when someone scored from the other side or other corner, because you would see the netting move with the shot and swoosh around. The nets this year make goals indistinguishable from rebounds if you're sitting on the opposite side or corner of the arena.
Not to mention some of the bounces out are ridiculous. Matt Martin scored on a breakaway at Monday's game vs Tampa and the puck literally rolled all the way to the Islanders' goal. Not even exaggerating.
