For the most part I find hockey on the small NAmerican ice more exciting because of the physical play and more hitting. Hockey on the big ice seems like soccer on ice because of all the room and less contact. I really don't think hockey on the big ice even generates more offense. So basically you don't get more offense but you lose some physical play. Boring if you ask me. Heaven on earth for the perimeter and soft players of the world.

On the other hand, the big ice does put a premium on good skating, which IMO is a positive. Alot of NHLers get away with mediocre skating skills because of the smaller ice.
