Giant goalie gear was a radical departure from traditional hockey. As many others have said, there has never been less "beauty" to goals than there is now - just guys firing it at the net and hoping it bounces off 17 players and past the goalie.

And scoring is reaching dead-puck territory. It's been down every year for 4 or 5 seasons now.
