The European ice surface is 15 feet wider than the 200-by-85 foot rink the NHL uses. Over the last 30 years the average NHL hockey player is 2 inches taller and 20 pounds heavier so it only makes sense to give these bigger players a bigger ice surface.  A bigger ice surface would also mean more scoring with forwards having more room to navigate and defencemen having more ice to defend.
