I've heard that NHL owners will never go to Olympic size ice because of the revenues they'd lose from those taking out premium seats.  But NHL players have gotten so big and fast that the smaller ice not only means less exciting play (at least imo), but probably also more injuries.

When they put the first PNC sign up I immediately thought of the NY Islanders.

 

Legend has a good point there.
