i know it's just one opinion, but i am interested and put a lot of stock into how a person in europe sees the north american game. i was for enlarging the rink until i saw this. conceptually, making the rink bigger would make the game more exciting allowing the skilled players more room to maneuver. but maybe that's not actually the case. i'd like them to give it a shot, though. just as a test. were the games the rangers played overseas last fall played on international or nhl sized rinks?
