And all the players would benefit a lot,since they don't have to learn a new game,when moving from Europe to NA or criss cross.
If having one rink in Europe and in North America is important, shouldn't it be as a result of a compromise?
"International" really means "European." Who are the non-European countries playing hockey? Israel, China, Korea, Mexico, South Africa. I think that's it. (Kazakhstan and Turkey are partly in Europe.)
None of the major hockey powers are outside of Europe.
If Europe and North America compromised with each other to settle on some midway point in rink size, I think it would be beneficial to both.
