I wasn't really pointing to the ice surface size because that is how the arenas are built here in NA...

What I saw was the fact the kids were trying to win, not tie games.

The NHL mantra is to not go out and win games, but go out and prevent goals scored, which has taken away from the natural talent and skills of the players. The Coach says, you can't take the puck to the net cause if you do, and it is turned over you are back in the minors.

Basically the owners have to see what is more important:
1). Entertainig the people who pay the bills

2). getting wins and giving the illusion that your team is entertaining.

That is all I was getting at.
