I hear you, when I first started league play again last month, I felt like I was watching my line and team lose constantly. I ended up having to slow down physically to keep up with the rest of the line, which helped me feel like I was part of the action. Also, reviewing video really seemed to help as well.

The book Hockey Tough recommends to have ABC's for each zone/situation. You right down and draw the three most important things you have to do on the ice, and repeat over and over. So for me, my ABC's are:

A - Stay in position
B - Move my feet
C - Communicate with my teammates

Just repeat over and over and over until you find yourself doing those things on the ice without thinking. I think if you can identify the things you need to do and make strides towards them, you should feel more a part of what's going on. And if you don't, perhaps the pace is too fast or slow for you?
