Jeff Carter prefers the NHL rink dimensions to the international one featured in the Olympics.
"It almost feels like there's more room over there, in the NHL. The ice is smaller but I feel like guys are a little more spread out," he said. "They force more on the boards. Where here, you get the puck on the wall, teams kind of back off and give you that space on the wall and just clog up the middle. It's a little bit different." It's been an adjustment for players accustomed to the North American-sized arenas and there has been some suffocating defense displayed in the middle of the ice throughout the tournament.
