Because they are the only ones the ice getting paid to be there. Everybody else is paying for the privilege to play. And we all have to get up and go to work the next day, at least those of us that aren't independently wealthy anyway.

A newer rink, actually a country club rink, just opened a men's league to the public this year. It is the best run league I have seen. The guy running it is a former AHL linesman and doesn't put up with any sh**. In fact, just two games into the opening session he kicked a team out. That program will max out it's available ice in no time. I have no desire to go back to the other rink's program where they let people get away with murder before kicking them out.
