Instead we see these bohemoths playing on a small little surface, where in if they take a tenth of a second to look down, they get clobbered and injured for life. You can't sit there and tell me the league is the better for having guys like Lindros, Chara, Bertuzzi, Rob Blake, Pronger playing on the same sized surfaces that guys in the 1950's played on.
Oh, I agree totally, but imo somewher between Oly sized rinks & the rinks we have today is a better soloution.
