on smaller ice, there is bad places to shoot the puck. but no matter what those bad angle shots can still can get through without the puck being seen.
Yeah, I agree with that. I think Europeans in general will have an advantage, not just KHLers.
The lack of familiarity with the larger ice presents a challenge for NA guys, but it is what it is.
Personally, I prefer the smaller ice. I find it to be more exciting.
