Scoring Down in the NHL

Pierre Lebrun reporting for cbcsports takes a look at the issue...
A year after sporting five 50-goal scorers, the most in a decade, only one player is currently on pace to top the magical barrier. [...]

Scoring is down across the board. The NHL was averaging 5.8 goals per game this season through Monday night's games, down from 6.1 through the same number of games last year, but still up from the 5.1 goals per game the league average through the same number of games in 2003-04 before the lockout.
Now the question becomes, what to do about it, if anything ?

Here's what I think should be done.
