I seem to remember the Philly-Pittsburgh series being less about gear size and more about technique. Bigger or smaller, protective or not, good goalies find a way to get in the way of the puck.
I NEVER had a good game because of my old gear, nor a bad one because of my newer stuff.
I'm more flexible, lighter, and read the play better than I did 10 years ago. Make my gear smaller and I'll gain mobility, and the effect is even more dramatic with the professionals. You want more scoring? Enforce the rules. You can reduce gear size all you want, but if nobody can get a shot off, it won't matter.
