By now, most of you have been on the ice for the first three games of the NHL season.
It was a great start to the season and the teams that will be competing for a playoff spot are starting to look pretty good.
But there’s still plenty of work to be done.
There are a lot of new faces to get used to.
Some players are coming into their own, some need time to adjust.
So let’s take a look at some of the biggest changes that have come with the NHL’s 2016-17 season.
The biggest change for the league this season has been the increased size of the arenas.
The average NHL arena is now over 300,000 square feet.
That’s nearly double the size of an average NHL rink in the 1980s and 1990s.
This is a huge change.
At the end of the day, arenas were once the largest in the world.
The only thing that mattered was the quality of the hockey on the rink.
Today, arenas are the size and shape of shopping malls.
In the 1980-90s, teams used to play in arenas with 15,000-25,000 fans.
The NHL is now playing games in arenas that are around 25,000.
That’s an increase of about 40,000 seats, according to the NHL.
If the teams are using the old-fashioned practice of using a 3-4-3 formation, then they are going to have to play on the smaller arena, which means less ice and more fans.
If you look at the game plan and how the teams plan to use their skaters and their lines, they are already playing on the largest arena.
That makes sense for a couple reasons.
First, the smaller the arena is, the more room for skating, especially for power play players.
If you can get the puck into the offensive zone quicker and with less of a delay, it creates more space for the team to get their power play going.
The other reason is that this is a team-oriented league.
Teams have a lot more control over how they play than they did a decade ago.
They are able to dictate how they are playing their players.
So if they want to make a player play more aggressively, they can.
The goal is to limit the chances that their players get into penalties, or that they get into turnovers.
The NHL also used to be a very physical league.
Now, teams are getting a lot less physical and playing a lot slower.
So it’s less likely that the puck will be on the stick of the forwards, so that the team can go for it and create offense.
The best players are playing on smaller arenas, so they are taking less chances.
So teams are going back to the 4-3-3.
The teams are also taking a more conservative approach to their game plans.
This means that the teams will be more hesitant to rush the puck and to try to get a rush going.
This will help them to keep the game going in a more defensive fashion, which will help their teams stay in the game longer and keep the puck out of the net.
The goal of a good team is to score.
This is why teams have been trying to change their style of play to create an easier scoring chance.
The players on a team have to be able to defend and defend and try to create a scoring chance themselves.
The more defensive a team is, they will create more chances for the opposing team.
The number of goals per game has been a big part of the change.
The number of power play opportunities per game, or PP opportunities per contest, have been a little bit lower this year than last.
Teams are scoring at a much higher rate this year.
The good teams are scoring more goals, but the bad teams are not scoring enough.
So, how is the NHL doing?
The team that is winning the Stanley Cup this season is the New Jersey Devils.
They have scored a lot in the first half of the season, but their goals per contest have been lower than last year.
They’ve also been losing their battle against the Philadelphia Flyers.
They played the Flyers in the second round of the playoffs and lost 2-1.
The Flyers have not been able to put up the same kind of offensive output this year as they did in the playoffs.
This was the first time in a long time that the New York Islanders had a losing record in the NHL, so it’s very good news for them.
It also means that they have to start winning games if they are to have any chance of making the playoffs this season.
