Bigger Nets??

http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/news_story/?ID=189148&hubname=nhl

Did everyone see this?

I think its a stupid idea. Stop changing everything every year. I thought we added enough scoring with the rule changes last year?

If this happens, it only vindicates Donald Brashear's comments even more.

They could use football nets and the Flyers would still get shut out.

Probably. They would still shoot high and wide

a) not sure what this would have to do with Brashear's comments.

b) you, me, and the players wouldn't even be aware of the change visually... it's such a small change and would amount to a very small change in the number of goals over the course of the year... i'm for it.

personally, i think they should take away the stick curvature rules first... and see what happens. i'm not a fan of how dumb they've sounded about the rule changes (they literally BRAGGED about ENFORCING the EXISTING rules), but i'm glad they're actually starting to take the idea of observation and action like the NFL.

That the NHL is gay now? Too many stupid changes to get more goals. Goals do not necessarily = excitement, which does not necessarily = more fans and revenue.

I understand that the league likes scoring, but introducing bigger nets seems a little drastic. Apperently they are/were considering nets that light up after a goal is scored. Not sure that's true though. Just something I heard.

They tried that in the AHL. I don't see how that adds any excitement or much of anything to the game at all. In fact, it looks downright stupid. Just another move by Bettman and co. that is slowly turning our game into a joke...err, basketball.

If they changed the nets I'd want the change to be very minor. I can understand part of the reasoning (goalies are "bigger" now because equipment takes up so much more space). I don't really like it either way, though.

How about cutting down on goalie pads even more, ban composite sticks too to shut that whiny ***** Brodeur up because we all know he will complain about "safety" then.

a 1 or 2 goal game not being over going into the third period creates more excitement... i don't really care about the goal totals, but the fluidity of the ability to score was the problem in previous years and i'm glad that they're looking into it.

what they've been talking about is an inch or two on either side... they could make the change tomorrow and you wouldn't be able to tell the difference from the seats/tv.

i also think that the change in scoring would be minor because goalies would simply adjust their positioning an inch to either side. there'd be more room, which would be good... but it wouldn't be a HUGE change.

Theres usually a couple of posts a game so 2 inches of extra width and height would mean a couple more goals per game.

I personally dont like the idea.

at most there is 2 per game. It's not like a 3-2 games becomes 8-7

The Phantoms have them. I didn't really make a goal more exciting from my perspective.

Well bigger nets mean we only lose games but 2 goals instead of 5.

I've been intentionally staying away from NHL games for years because the nets were just too boring. IF they put those lights on the nets in every NHL arena, you can bet I'm going to get season tickets! Wow, light up nets! That'll save the NHL and make the game more exciting! I mean, come on, when a goal is scored, the nets light up! Doesn't that just bring you to your feet?

Agreed. The change is so small that the only guys who would really benefit are the league's snipers. The plumbers might expect to get an extra goal over the course of a season, but the gunners who can really pick their corners could benefit nicely.

Agreed again. Padding is now such that banana blades can be brought back.

If memory serves me, it was only a month or so after Brodeur's comments thats your own Robert Esche and Bob Clarke joined in on the "whining" about goalie safety.
