Are the nets in the NHL arbitrarily sized? I figured they were all 6 by 4, and I wouldnt understand why there would be any variation.
If you extend the dimensions of the net, I think you may in turn be forcing the goaltenders to re-learn how to play their position to a significant degree.
I think it would cause more problems then it might be intended to solve. Its a radical change.
