Do you feel the CHL stifles offensive creativity; placing an emphasis on positional play and defense?
There's more emphasis on skating, East-West game, puck handling, traditional Russian skills, etc. etc. Practices are longer but drawn out (skill repetition over and over).
I've read interviews where players are surprised with NA practices because they're so short and high paced.
