I believe a movement toward instituting the Olympic-size ice sheet in all NHL buildings is way overdue. I tend to believe that most of the NHL owners and general managers know it. The problem is they can't make it happen without costing themselves tons of money. State-of-the-art buildings in North America would suddenly not be that anymore if the larger surface were adopted. Retrofitting existing buildings would be an engineering and logistical nightmare in most cases. So, guess what? It ain't gonna happen.
