European hockey is just boring on the big rink. As I mentioned, I traveled to Scandinavia during the last lockout. You're watching soccer on ice just as you do when CCHA/WCHA teams play on an international sized rink. Teams simply setup in their defensive zone in 2-1-2. Two wingers who attack the puck handlers. A center who tries to disrupt a pass into the offensive zone, and two d-men who slouch back and try to break up any passes to wingers. It's the most predictable style.
