California. Duh.
I was waiting for the Bruins to score 3 minutes from now and then have the refs chalk it off with the net dislodged.

This commercial with Regina King would have been so much better if she ran into ice cube and he asked her to borrow $200.

The ice doesn’t have to be that bad. I think the NHL tries too hard to duplicate their indoor ice, instead of making the best outdoor ice possible.

The REAL issue making the ice isn’t that there’s not a roof overhead, it’s that there’s not a level concrete surface underneath - and the NHL likes to keep the ice thin, so they can better control the ice temperature…which in my opinion compromises the integrity of the ice. I think they’d be better off giving up on trying to micromanage ice temps, and going with a thicker, stronger sheet.


This is interesting -- I did not know that. From your pen, then, to the NHL brass. But, given their general level of "unresponsiveness" it may be awhile, or never.
