    Just say no to the minute buzzer. That throws off tempo and makes games boring. We just need to keep each other in check.

    Thanks again for setting it up, HG. We owe you a lot more than a beer!

    When you are get tired get off, if you are still tired, skip the next shift.

    Really? Because it is only an hour long, unless I'm missing
    something. You do realize some people who play are limited
    to ice time, never have a puck passed to them and most
    never have a shot on net. But if I am wrong, I will be sure to
    stay on the ice longer and relax, and you enjoy the bench.

    Lets be real people, we all pay we all play.

    Im a fan of pay more, play more, but this has already been settled.

    I will show up, and I will play however it is setup, wether is be full benches or ironman hockey.

    Personally, I say cut it down to 16, but that's just me.


    To the newbies:
    Just because you may:
    1. Be younger
    2. Skate faster
    3. Have more skill
    4. Need to impress the chick you're trying to bang
    5. Think you have more energy than a guy who sits at a desk all day, smokes a grip of cigs, including right before (and I would during, given the option) the games, eats fast food twice a day, was probably up all night drinking, and is probably still drunk from the night before,

    ... doesn't mean you get to take a 5-minute shift. Consequences may include:

    1. Me sicking Tonga on you, regardless of whether or not you're on my team.
    2. Me giving you a "stern talking to" regardless of whether or not you're on my team.
    3. Me sleeping with your hot, over 18 y/o relatives, regardless of whether or not you're on my team.
    4. Me sleeping with your mediocre over 18 y/o relatives (it's out of hate, not love), regardless of whether or not you're on my team.



    In all seriousness, let's just let everyone have a good time.
    Be great to see you all on the rink.

    Can. Not. Wait.

    Go Team.... Dark...?
    YEAH!!!
    I am guilty to the five minute shift every once in a while...

    Im still in 18AAA shift mode, where you stay out till coach hollers.

    ill admit it i take a long shift here and there but most the time its because the puck is deep in our zone or were pressing forward and its a horrible time to get off, i ll do my best to keep it fair... can't wait guys!

    I like the buzzer idea, actually... Pick-ups I've played in that have used the buzzer went pretty smoothly.

    And it doesn't matter what the excuse is, when you take long shifts you're taking away other people's ice time. Obviously, like Fan4Life suggested, don't make nonsensical changes just for the sake of changing... But how often is the puck in the zone for more than a minute?

    I also think we need a better way to even out the teams. I still think some kind of self-rating system would be worth a try.

    self rating systems are an exercise in FAIL. Inevitably you have the nice guy who rates himself a 6 when in this group he should be a 9 and the 19 year old jackass who rates himself a 9 when he should be a 6 who's sucking up ice time like a frat boy on his first kegstand. The fairest way to rate people relative to eachother is a practice with drills running like a Club team assessment, it is totally unnecessary and unrealistic for this type of pick up game. You just have to trust that the frequent players can keep eachother in check and are willing to trade teams if one side seems out of balance and the new guys don't pull a LA(me)Teddy and come out cool. Everyone just wants to have a good time with good people and hopefully no nOobz harsh the vibe.

    Am I in my own little world here?

    Every pick-up game seems to provide enough ice time for everyone, quite frankly you all look pretty spent by the end.

    The sticks method isn't perfect but with a minor adjustment after the first 15 min it works.

    If it aint broke...
