Goalie equipment technology (if that's the right word) has had a much greater effect than sheer size. Pads are lighter, thinner, more water resistant, more breathable, yet more protective. Then we have team systems, goalie style, and goalie body size which all play a huge role. IMO pure equipment size is a minor factor here, but it's the easiest one to change and assign as a scapegoat.
I'm fine with trimming down equipment. But once goalies adjust, they will be just as good as before. If you want to increase scoring, you need to look elsewhere, e.g. blocked shots and net size.
