What makes you think they won't call just as many penalties with the bigger nets?

My understanding, and perhaps I'm wrong, is that the rules were changed to create more flow and scoring opportunities, not just more goals. If they stop calling all the holding, hooking and interference we'd have more goals with the bigger nets but we'd return to playing most of each game in the neutral zones between the bluelines. That doesn't sound very entertaining.
