A lot of those changes are long overdue. Mallard populations have been on the decline for a while. However, you can also shoot two black ducks now out there. There were MANY days when the limit was only one black that we shot our black ducks right away and only ended up with one or two mallards each. Then we would watch flocks of blacks landing in the decoys the rest of the morning...

As for the goose reduction, the Atlantic goose population has also been on the decline for a while. They actually just cut the March season out where I used to live, and reduced limits in a lot of areas. Local goose populations are strong in central NY and New Jersey, but the migration has decreased significantly.

As for the seasons, I actually used to like it because I would buy a PA license and hunt first there for a few weeks before New York opened (and we were 20 miles North of the PA border) It didn't really make sense to me. Our migrations typically started around Thanksgiving and continued on until January.
