I think the bolded parts are valid reasons for why you may suck (your words, not mine ). The older you get the more important physical conditioning and practice becomes. I feel ya, brother. I'll be 40 in October and I never appreciated my youth when I had it. One thing I can be happy about is I started hockey in my early 30's so right now I'm the best I've ever been. I don't have to compete against a young "me", just against the other guys on the ice.

If you feel you're in over your head you'll probably hate it. Going down a level sounds like a good idea at this point.
