Do you like the idea of bigger nets in hockey?
Tue, September 25, 2007
Roberto Luongo says he'd quit the NHL if the league introduced larger nets.

There is no plan to do so but there was a lot of talk a couple of years ago as an idea to enhance offence.

Do you agree with Luongo? Have your say in our forum.

Leave the nets as they are. There is just as much excitement from a great save as there is with a great goal. A 0-0 game builds excitement and prepares you for the big moment. Make that goal (or those few goals) set the stage for the passion we all love about the game.

Nothings 'pure' so stop worrying about the past. Would slightly bigger nets make the game better...likely. And Luongo, I am sure that you would go play for about 1/10 the money in Russia or something if the NHL ups the size of the nets - get real!

I can't believe I'm the only sane person on this board! Look at how much bigger goalies are than in the '80s!!! Same decade is consistently regarded as the most exciting in NHL history. Either shrink the goalies and their ludicrous equipment back to normal, or make the nets bigger. Either way, something's got to give.

I agree with Mr Luongo. Here's an idea, ban composite sticks so goalie's gear size can be reduced. You don't see aluminum bats in MLB.

Leave the net as is.

The idea must be coming from some activist that dont know this sport. The next thing is wider pads, wider gloves bigger sticks bigger this and that etc. Why dont you make the net 30 ft wide and use a big screen instead of a goaltender. The fun of the game will gone forever.

When they lower basketball nets and bring baseball outfields in 100 ft they can make hockey nets bigger. Quit trying to change the game

The idea of bigger nets is the most idiotic thing in the world

A-Men Roberto.

I hate the idea of bigger nets. Thank you Roberto.
