But 6 feet difference (twice, because of the format of the race) absolutely does make a difference and that is the ENTIRE point of the argument in this thread. When did a thread about a teen in a random rink that may be off by who knows how much outskating the NHLs reigning fastest skater become about YOUR rinks and whether or not a few feet prevents them from being considered "standard"? The entire point was even if that kid was on a "standard" rink it still may be shorter, skewing the results.
