I play DD at Logitech Ice and I am ok at that level, but playing against these guys makes me feel like an EEE player.
So, don't worry about getting your level of play up. It's more about skating and trying to work on things you wouldn't do in a game. There is no real "team" play at drop in's anyways. If you play D, you could work on positioning one on one's, or two on one's. If you are a forward you learn how to be ready for a pass from anywhere
Good idea in the thread by the way
Those are my favorite pickups, by far. Not that I enjoy getting sniped in every possible way, but I do enjoy the challenge and it helps my footwork and reactions a ton.
