Fond memories of small rinks in Buffalo and Boston. Wasn't Calgary's rink bigger than standard as well? Non standard playing surfaces adds to the interest and character of games.
Mentioned the Saddledome in the original post. It was huge. EDIT: And pardon me, it was "Stampede Corral," not the current Saddledome.
185, I can see the difference. The Aud was 196. I always wondered how much difference two feet at either end could make. More psychological than anything?
Good topic, Eleven.
Wasn't the Aud narrow, too, though?
I seem to recall the Quebec ice being ... idiosyncratic somehow as well.
Yeah, it had this little ###### behind the home bench.
In the CFL, some end zones are smaller than others because the corners are chopped off.
I always found it weird.
This is true, and that's kind of neat as well.
