Stavanger has figured it out, and will build a 5000(?) seats stadium in NHL-rink size. Hopefully the old norwegian hockey federation will change the rules to make norwegian hockey more entertaining and game itself with more tempo and energy.
So youíre going with NHL-sized rinks huh? Cool, I think itís a good move. I hope for the same for Sweden but sadly I think that is a long time coming. Hope that will spark appropriate interest in Norway. Mats Zuccarello was a big thing in Sweden (still is, the swedish tabloids keep track on his development on the other side of the pond) and should be so in his home country as well.
