I think width is more an issue than length. Length only figures into the mess when goalies go down (which I know happens alot these days)...but the width has gotten out of control....and makes a huge difference when a shooter is looking for daylight.

I posted a while ago, but it seems like a good refresher...

certainly very convincing and then we could still have the gritty golaies come out adn play adn have more goal scoring...i like, maybe they shoudl stop wearing helmets too then if both the goalies are out of the game with giant gashes to the head because of pucks flying at lightspeed then they wont have a goalie to go with and they will definitley increase for hte nucks we have a 3rd string so if clouts adn auld were to go down we could always throw sopel in net
Did you see the pool? They flipped the bitch

I guess you can see just a very little difference in the game by just cutting down the pads.

There's more than that like the flow (tightness, clutching, grabbing), style of play (offensively and defensively) and maybe some small rule changes like no red line, etc.

You have to put in all the small things to see a real difference. Even bigger nets (i don't mean the curved posts !!!) could be just a factor or part of it to equalize nowadays tighter defensive play.
