No fighting.

International size ice surface.
no fighting is a non starter. the players gm's and most importantly the fans have spoken and the overwhelming majority of them want fighting to remain ( for different reasons).

International ice I'm ambivalent about but the owners certainly don't want it ( or more specifically the cost to retrofit the arenas). I think more ice means more positional play and less hitting which is one of the unique aspects of the game that helps sell hockey.
