The crappier the ice is... The crappier the show is. So from a marketing point of view, it would be an error and the two teams are playing on the same ice so I dont see how it could be an advantage, even if your playing the trap.
I also think the nhl would not approuve that kind of behaviour, there trying to make the players score more goals not the contrary (I'm talking about the NHL not Claude Julien)
