Go 4-on-4 full time

Demetrios Nikolaou, Cambridge, Ont.

Why doesn't the NHL go to 4-on-4 hockey and/or to the larger bow-shape nets?

It would make the game more enjoyable to watch.

With 4-on-4 hockey there would be more flow and less injuries to players. If you watch the game now there's more action in 4-on-4 overtime than there is in the whole game.

I only watch if I think the game is going into overtime.

To me it makes sense, which is probably why the NHL won't do it.
