47793Re: [hockhist] Re: Hockey Net Size
- Apr 1, 2005One thing I haven't heard in all this discussion, indeed, in the standard arguments is ice
temperature. About a month ago, I took my daughter to a Grizzlies game. They had a post-game
skate. The ice was soft. It was probably about 60-70F (15-20C) at waist level. When I go
elsewhere, I'd freeze if I were in a t-shirt. Is slow ice a contributor to the lack of offense?
