Personally, I don't have a real problem with the bigger nets. That's a much better way of generating extra offense than calling dubious penalty after dubious penalty, IMO, it doesn't hurt the flow of the game. Goalies can complain, but they'll learn to adjust. Desjardins sure wasn't hurt by it yesterday, for example.
Bigger nets don't generate offense, they generate goals. (In other words, they don't create more offensive rushes or speed up the game or improve the flow. All they do is improve shooting pctg.)
