    thanks jammer. you are right, playing down would only frustrate me....as the last 4 seasons have shown, it was amplified even further because i was playing goalie. i have zero reason to believe this would be fun, i don't know anyone on that team they placed me on.

    Yesterday was last day of clinics before a game. It went ok basic turning and crossover drills we actually had 3 tendys show up. We didn't get our team jerseys so not sure how the **** we gonna play our first game light vs dark? It's been OK overall so far. Only met 2 people on my team. I think I ended up with the team that gets blown out by everyone lol. Should still be fun will post a vid next week of my first game!

    Our new season started yesterday. Despite the heat, the ice was fantastic! We were down 4-2 in the second period, but ended up winning 10-5. Even though the score was high, both goalies played pretty well and made quite a few good saves.

    LOLOLOL, classic "The Rinks" right there my friend. They'll manage to outdo themselves each week with a new form of incompetence that you never even thought was possible.

    I remember two seasons ago there was a team didn't have their jerseys (that The Rinks were suppose to provide). So, they did give them practice jerseys to wear, and I kid you not, the numbers were safety pinned on to the backs of them via a white rectangle, with black spray painted stenciled numbers on them!!!

    I guess so, because there really were quite a few shots? I was sort of focused on doing my job, but I don't recall seeing them put too much pressure on the puck. We had a healthy share of possession, and because of that I spent a lot of time making havoc in front of the crease and had a few good jams.

    They did a very good job of getting to loose pucks, and they'd have 3 or 4 join the rush. I backcheck hard on those, sometimes on the puck carrier, but most of the time trying to shut down extra attackers. On one of their goals, it was my fault, IMO, when I got beat to a loose puck. I was shielding it from a guy on my right who made a nifty move and went behind me to get to my left side. But I broke up a bunch of other plays, so happy with that.

    Maybe the turning point for them on the whole was after we scored on a 3 on 1 rush. Their goalie was pretty mad at the defense, and the wheels sort of came off for them after that. Also, two of our players showed up late, so we got some fresh legs late in the game.

    Every week I realize what you told me is true and this is all I can do.

    Guess who's back, UH!

    What beer (belly) leaguers. Popped in to give my boy xLAxKingsx the low-down on Anaheim Rookie League. Turns out we're on the same team! At least we were a few weeks ago, I know they juggled the rosters. Still on the Gulls, which I don't mind since I lived in San Diego back in the early 90's and I remember the Gulls playing at the old Sports Arena down there, so I kinda dig it for the nostalgia factor.

    Anyway, Anaheim summer league looks like a hot mess, virtually all new skaters. The better players pretty much all moved up to copper save for a a couple of d-bag loser sandbaggers. If all goes well this will be my last season in rookie. I consider the first season at Lakewood a redshirt season since I was injured for half the games and then buried on the bench for a lot of the others. Good experience but didn't really help my development all that much. I made some progress last season at Anaheim mostly because we only had enough players to roll with two lines which was fine with me, and because my team had some really good skaters to play off of. Not sure what to expect this season with a roster full of n00bs, I am anticipating that I might have to play D if the general skating ability is as bad it sounds. I'm not nearly as proficient in skating backwards as I'd like to be but I've been working on it a bit since I saw this coming so I think I'll be able to hold my own. First few games are always a bit of a cluster-f anyway. First game tomorrow night, can't wait.
