    RULE 12 – STANDARD DIMENSIONS OF RINK
    i. For top-level IIHF competitions, the recommended dimensions of the
    rink are 60 metres (197') long and 25– 30 metres wide (82'– 98'5").

    ii. The corners of the rink must be rounded in the arc of a circle with a
    radius of 7.0 to 8.5 metres (23'– 28').

    iii. In countries where the standards set out in Rules 12-i and 12-ii are
    not possible, other dimensions are allowed so long as they are
    approved by the IIHF before the competition or game is played.

    iv. For IIHF World Championship tournaments, the official dimensions
    must be 60 metres (197') long and 30 metres (98'5") wide.


    "IIHF World Championship tournaments" may mean just the Senior tournaments and not the Junior tournaments.

    Next year in Helsinki they'll use two arenas. Hartwall is the primary, it's 30mX60m (98'-5" x 196'-10"). I cannot find info on the Helsinki Ice Hall, but it's likely that or close. 'Merica rounds to 100'x200', but true international is 30x61m.

The reason I am asking is that there is a huge blow-up over here in the Czech Republic where the head coach did everything he could to cut every overseas Czech player (several in the Q and OHL). The fight is about the Czech development model which seeks to limit the number of players leaving the Czech Republic to play in Sweden, Finland or Canada. It has proved to be a huge failure (as opposed to the Slovak model). Vaclav Karabaček (drafted by the Buffalo Sabres in the second round/49th overall) was kicked off the team for oversleeping a video session (the 'official' reason). The ironic thing is that Pavel Zacha (projected to be a 2015 early 1st round NHL pick) was Karabaček's best friend and roommate and also slept through the video session (but at that point the head coach only had room to kick off one more player) so he was 'allowed' to stay.

    After the tournament the head coach quit and then collapsed and had to be taken to the hospital. The reason I am asking about the rink size is that if the rink size was NHL size, then it would be one more reason to take as many high-quality Czech players playing in Canada.

    The '96 D has similar-type players - Collins, Glover, Dougherty, MacLeod. Besides for Hanafin and Werenski, the '97 D also includes a late-97er Charlie McAvoy (BU bound and '16 draft eligible) who has very good puck-moving abilities. Krys' still set is definitely above the '96 crop, so depending upon the direction the brass and coaching staff go in, he could get a look this Summer at the tryout camp.

    Good post-mortem by Chris Dilks today: http://www.sbncollegehockey.com/2015...-a-post-mortem

    Going all crystal ball, here is how I envision next year's roster:

    FORWARDS
    Brock Boeser
    Jeremy Bracco
    Kyle Connor
    Ryan Donato
    Christian Dvorak
    Jordan Greenway
    Dylan Larkin
    Ryan MacInnis
    Auston Matthews
    Sonny Milano
    Nick Schmaltz
    Alex Tuch
    Colin White

    DEFENSEMEN
    Louie Belpedio
    Brandon Carlo
    Ryan Collins
    Jack Dougherty
    Noah Hanafin
    Johnathan MacLeod
    Zach Werenski

    GOALTENDERS
    Brandon Halverson
    Alex Nedeljkovic
    Luke Opilka

    1996s
    Belpedio
    Carlo
    Collins
    Connor
    Donato
    Dougherty
    Dvorak
    Halverson
    Larkin
    MacInnis
    MacLeod
    Milano
    Nedeljkovic
    Schmaltz
    Tuch

    1997s
    Boeser
    Bracco
    Greenway
    Hanafin
    Matthews
    Opilka
    Werenski
    White


    NCAA (projected)
    Belpedio
    Boeser
    Bracco
    Collins
    Connor
    Donato
    Dougherty
    Greenway
    Hanafin
    Larkin
    MacLeod
    Opilka
    Schmaltz
    Tuch
    Werenski
    White

    Major Junior (Projected)
    Carlo
    Dvorak
    Halverson
    MacInnis
    Matthews
    Milano
    Nedeljkovic


    Older team with many returning players and more size up front (Greenway, Boeser, MacInnis) as well as replenished skill (Bracco, Connor, Dvorak) to complement the returning forwards. 4 returning defensemen, anchored by Hanafin and Werenski. Halverson should emerge as the #1 goalie.
    Not a fan of Donato's game at all...Was unimpressive when I saw him with the U-18 squad and with the South Shore Kings this year. Doesn't stand out for a second round pick at all.
