if anything they're trying to copy the best North American examples. They will install a LED ring, improve the lighting and sound systems, and my guess is they will emphasize on a free t-shirts and different "noise-making" merchandise, mascots, cheerleaders, pre-game shows and stuff like that.
Like he said, the main goal is to make visiting hockey a popular destination. The less- dependent they are on the people like you mentioned (the ones who complain about kiss-cams) - the better it is.
Also he especially mentioned that he never said that he feels himself as a Finn.
You forgot 'Let's go Jokerit'.
