Kukla's Korner Hockey

One of the items on the agenda at the NHL general managers meeting in February is whether, in an effort to increase scoring, the league should make the goal bigger. It’s now six feet wide by four feet high—the same as it’s always been. The new goal would add eight inches in width and four inches in height—80” x 52”—so if you do the math, that’s a 20 percent increase.
Goalies and so-called “traditionalists” have howled in protest ever since Colin Campbell, the league’s director of hockey operations, floated the idea in late December. But I think—no, I’m certain—that it’s an idea whose time is long overdue.
