It's an artificial way to increase scoring.
Reducing equipment size is going to make shots from wide angles and beyond the dots dangerous again. That alone will force teams to be more aggressive on defense, which will open up the game.

Reducing equipment isn't going to keep status quo with the illusion of more bad goals. It's going to fundamentally change the way teams play on offense and defense.

EDIT: I'm assuming the NHL puts their big boy pants on and reverts back to 70s/80s size equipment but with kevlar, plastic, and foam. I mean jeez, look at the size of Dryden's upper body in that picture. Imagine what Stamkos, Crosby, and Malkin can do against Brian Elliot with that much space.
