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.
Exactly, as soon as the teams reverted back to the 80's style of defence in that series the scoring shot way up. Why? cause players can come into the zone with speed, and had time to shoot and pick corners.
