The question I ask is why did the league allow them to get so big?

Smaller and thicker pads can be just a "safe" as these. The problem is every goalie in the league with oversized mattresses strapped to their legs will have to learn to adjust their game or suffer greatly in the stats category.

As for enlarging the nets, I don't think that needs to be done if they bring goalie equipment down in size to a reasonable level.

Plus a 7 foot wide net I think would be too big. If the league did go that route, maybe 6' 6'' across.
