    When I played in my youth, and then into my 20's I enjoyed the battles in front of the net. Now, I just let the mofo camp on top of the crease and I'll stand in front of him, or to the side. Its easy enough to just lift their stick when a pass or shot comes towards the net.
    When I'm on forward, if the goalie is slashing my legs then I know I'm doing a good job haha. Actually this is why the captain moved me to forward.

    Sounds like you are the sacrificial forward!

    I wish people played a little more competitive but i get it. Its rookie league there's a few players that play with a little edge but everyone ends up being to nice. I'm sure it ll be different if i move up to Tin.

    Based on my experience, the Rookie League has the most hacks/try-hards in it, people that think they are real hockey players now and act like complete tools. Granted, it is more or less the same at every level, but it is just pure comedy to watch some d'bags in Rookie try to act tough. I'm actually a little hesitant to watch my wife's games because I'm sure some d'bag on the other team is going to do something and piss me off. And then I won't be able to talk **** because I'll have my daughters with me, lmfao!

    The worst was a few years ago when The Rinks was allowing 2nd, 3rd, 4th year teams stay in Rookie, talk about a great way to build up animosity. That is why they recently developed the TIN league, so people that were too skurred to leave the safe confines of smashing actual rookie level teams in ROOKIE were forced to move up.

    Bee... If something happens in your wifes rookie game and you dont report back that you ran onto the ice and beat someones ass ill be disappointed! My wife takes my daughter to my games age 9 and i enjoy her screaming "DAD HIT HIM!!!!!!!!" haha!

    But you are right about the rinks finally doing something about it. First time i played a few years ago the competition at rookie was ridiculous full pre made teams of players that should have moved up. Its a bit better now but team we played Saturday about 6 of them had custom jerseys from a team they must have formed. Guess Tin was to much they dropped down and still lost

    Well, with all the D talk lately, I actually played LW last night. We had 5 of us that typically play D, I used to play LW, so I volunteered to play up.

    It was a bit more skating, so I was feeling gassed quicker than usual, especially since we were on the Olympic sized rink. But I had a blast, I had at least one shot on each shift, sometimes two or three! I probably had around 10-12 shots total! Sadly, none went in, but it was really fun to get so many shots. I did have two apples. One of which ironically came from a shot-pass when I was covering the point for our D who was down low. We started off with a 1-0 lead going into the 2nd, but then they were up 3-1 halfway through the 3rd. We scored late in the third, pulled the goalie with 1:30 left to go in the game and tied it with :45 to go! We eventually lost in the shootout, but it was a great game! We had 51 shots on goal, yes 51! Their goalie stood on his head, that is for sure! I think they had 30 shots or so?

    That come back must have been nice! Ive only been in 1 and its a rush when you tie it late. I really enjoy the more space on Olympic while playing forward.

    It's not more skating at forward, it's more stopping and starting that kills you. Or at least when I'm more effective that's what I'm doing.

    Yup, you are 100%!

    One second you are breaking out of your zone, and then two seconds later a neutral zone turnover and you are stopping and/or turning back the other way towards your zone!

    Last week was another win! I haven’t had a season with more than 1 win in about 3 years ��.

    Played D again and felt good. Haven’t had a goal scored while I’m on the ice so I figure that’s good.

    I did try beedees tip of using my skate for rim around the boards and that worked great! Was able to angle my skate so puck would end up in front of me. Had a few shots on net as well so that was fun. I def need to work on my shot. Took a few slap shots during warm up but still felt a bit wobbly so in game I chickened out.

    Game tomorrow is against the other team that’s looking good so we shall see how good we really are. I’m excited for some better hockey. It really boggles my mind how teams can enjoy playing down and running thru lesser teams. I find it a bit boring at times.
