We should have petitioned the league to have a bigger ice surface. Not Olympic sized but that hybrid size they have in Finland (i believe it's Finland). It would reflect the skating and skill identity of the Oilers and I believe we could have succeeded in getting it if we really wanted it. There is precedent for it in that MLB doesn't have every field to the exact same specs.
It would also give us an advantage in that more Oilers would be selected to the Olympics because they would be more used to bigger ice.
Also just on an ending note, the game has changed. Players are bigger and faster than before. It's not that crazy to expect the rink to change as well. I like the look of the game with more room out there.
That sounds horrible.
