Make the nets bigger

Let's make the net bigger. Goaltenders are now twice the size they were 30 years ago and since I don't believe the league will successfully reduce the size of goalie equipment, they should just increase the size of the net.

Take a photo from 25 years ago and calculate how much of the net the shooter had to aim at compared to now, then increase the size of the net by that amount.

Years ago Guy Lafleur could score with a slapshot from the top of the circle. You rarely see that now.
