    Our division finally grew from two to four teams. One of the new teams was bumped down after getting destroyed in the division above us. The other team was cobbled together from people who attend the skills and drills class. We played the skills and drills team last night, and won 7-0.

    Props to @P. Diddy who busted out a hat trick!

    We got waxed last night by a clearly superior team, 8-1 I think? They actually played as a team and moved the puck like crazy, the time of possession was insanely lopsided, as it felt like we where shorthanded all night. They passed well, they moved well, I'd be lying if I said I wasn't jealous.

    I finally got to play a bit up front with @eddieshack23 but it was tough to get anything going for us. Our team has a couple players on it that are guaranteed to dish anywhere between 3-7 no-look, backhanded passes either up the middle in our zone, or just anywhere. Each week it is the same thing, I will skate to an open area to give that person with the puck a lane to pass to and it never fails, they don't look where they are passing and just fling it forward, usually to an opposing player.

    I know it is just Monday night roller hockey, but that ish is growing more and more frustrating. :(

    That was the team I mentioned earlier. I've played with and against some of them for years.

    The guys that are a problem, we know who they are. Hopefully we will come up with a solution next season .

    Ahh, I had a feeling that team might have been the one you mentioned. Just imagine if they had that one guy that wasn't there last night!
    Regarding the problem guys, I don't want to be a dick and be "that guy" that gives pointers or what not during a game, but maybe a general statement in between periods can be said? I dunno. I know Brucey mentioned it to one of them after the game.

    On a side note, did any of you guys every play street hockey with the orange mylec ball? I loved that thing, it felt more fluid to me than a roller hockey puck does on sport court.

    Yes. The orange ball. That was the only thing worth a damn in the 70s and 80s.

    That's all I played with during my first go around with roller hockey back in the early 90's. Now, I'm used to the slowness of the roller puck and am having such a hard time controlling the puck on ice.

    This speaks volumes! That is the thing I think I can't stand about the current state of indoor roller hockey (and some outdoor rinks too), is the use of the roller hockey puck. There is too much friction, the puck is too light and it all just feels way too unnatural to me. The ball had a nice weight to it, it rolled smoothly and it just added a nice overall fluidness to the game being played. Part of my overall distaste for roller hockey is how flat out awkward the game feels to me. Constantly having to push the puck along the way instead of having it just move along easily with you (as the ball did, and as a puck does on ice) sucks.
