And when Jokerit played there the atmosfere was the best in the country in the 90's. I miss those days. Jaffa-areena is just too big.

I don't know websites in english. SM-liiga's site's sucks in finnish already so, in english can't even imagine.

But ask for more. Me and some other guys will help u as much as we can.
Do they play in NHL sized rinks in Suomy Finland?

Basically in Finland each team can play with a rink size they want.

I think most are 60x28 meters. Blues and TPS have the biggest rinks IIRC.

Thanks a lot for your answer
So most of the teams are playing in a kind of midlesized rinks? Does the leauge benefit from it?
Is it a better game than in 60x30 rinks in your opinion?

Jokerit also normally play in a 30 m wide rink.
