I agree with most of this.

Knowing the core is important, because we can move them (Muddy, Anon, etc) if needed.
In the past, we've divided up these guys, then drew sticks. Lately we've been picking sticks then switching in the locker room if we found the teams to be too lopsided (or if someone is offered vodka and they're a dirty, dirty traitor), which is pretty much the same thing.
We tweak as needed, during the game, and a good time is had by all. Perfect, no. But it works.
Just my 2 cents.
HG, my lewd comments brought you attention. There is no bad publicity. And what do you expect when you hire the Harmon Brass Balls award winner?

Physically, yes. Mentally, questionable.

I agree 100% with this.

The tweaking system works pretty well, but im pretty sure this time around we SHOULD be able to get things close off the bat.
Looking forward to tomorrow.

Its looking like I will not be able to make it tomorrow...unfortunatley the little lady and I are going through some rough waters and I am taking her out of town for tonight and tomorrow...
Sorry guys, I hate to be the last minute drop out guy, hopefully there is someone who can fill in my spot. I really wanted to play but life happens...next time.
Hope everyone had a great holiday and have a great time at the game.

I'll be bringing a bag of goodies to unload.
Skates, gloves, shins, helmets, etc.
Not being Santa here as the stuff's not mine to give away.
Check the stuff out, lemme know what you think it's worth to you, toss me some cash and we'll get it done.

So what's your goalie count at thus far?? Room for one more?

How would someone who's skills are limited to "Not falling down" fair?

I got a fellow Kings fan, Daniel, who is also playing today.
See you guys there.
