- low scoring
Apparently I have the clue that you've been looking for.
Did you watch the last Olympic Games? Or the ones before?
The Nagano games featured some of the best games ever. That is due to of course the number of good players in competition, but also to the ice surface.
When skilled players have more space, they can use their skills and speed to create havoc.
It also eliminates many forms of the trap, which IS killing hockey.
