    Not sure haven't met him but this might hold truth as the only goalie that showed up has only been playing for 2 months. It does make sense though as he was only used for us to shoot pucks at lol.

    lol, isn't it amazing that the mentality of the league is that only the skaters need instruction!?! it seems like it is globally recognized that goalies are automatically skilled and don't need any instruction at all, there fore they are ignored at clinics, when it reality it is the most difficult positions to play in the game, physically and mentally.

    Yes seriously after reading your trial and tribulations about the position i let the guy know after the session was over i appreciated him being out there as the lone goalie and sticking around for us. You can tell he really wanted to partake in drills or any other action then just being tossed into the goal. Only instruction i saw him get was another coach just shooting pucks at him when we weren't felt bad for the guy and he looked downed after hope it wasnt to demoralizing.

    That right there my friend does wonders for a goalie's psyche. Thanks for reading my stories man, I'm glad to see that you took it to heart and are spreading the love to the tendies you come across.

    Btw, I'm still waiting to hear from the league directors about what team I am going to be on this upcoming season at Bay Harbor.

    Thats what i was going for after reading your experience i had never thought about it till your stories came up. Goalies are getting beat up a whole game and probably feel the most at fault for a loss so i gotta do what i can to let em know its appreciated from now on!

    Hope you get a ducks affiliated team lol i cant be the only one hating the team colors and name while playing. Why couldnt i get drafted into the Reign.

    I hate all my team jerseys that aren't Kings colors, which is all of them, my most hated ones had Avs, Canadiens,and Hawks colors. I have some Kings themed jerseys planned for my next team.

    Well after nearly two weeks of waiting to find out what team I was placed on at Bay Harbor, I found out this morning. Bronze ended up being a no-go because there weren't any openings and their Silver equivalent plays on Wednesday nights (which I can't make). They placed me on a Copper level team, which is second from the bottom. I have skated out off and on for over 20 years, so playing Copper wasn't going to happen for me. The last time I skated out (the season before last) I was skating in what now is the Silver League at Lakewood, and previous seasons I skated in lower Gold. I kindly told them thanks but no thanks, and they issued me a refund for my first league payment. This was the very reason of why I didn't want to register and pay before I was placed on a team....in the case of getting put on too low of a level, which ended up happening. Luckily they processed the refund today before lunch time.

    Looks like I will most likely be playing Silver at Artesia, which is basically Cerritos. I talked to their league director on the phone yesterday and he said it won't be a problem finding me a team. Their season also starts this weekend.

    Thats tough Beedee, I'm glad you were able to find a backup but I think you'll find you made the right choice. Playing in a level where you can't play a team game is just incredibly tough unless you have reason to believe the teams going to be worth it.
