Team defence is predicated on specific goalie styles, and goalie styles are in turn predicated on goalie equipment. Revert to Glen Hall era equipment, and nobody is playing butterfly style, which in turn makes the "trap and collapse" system play becomes counter-productive.
But they aren't going to revert equipment like that, so I think they'd be better off changing goal size instead. Add a foot in each direction, that should do it.
