I always liked it - actually, I always refused the money (partially because by accepting the money, I was accepting that players weren't always going to hustle, and I wanted to ride some guys to get them to hustle more
But I could see - and did see - a lot of other good goalies get discouraged by the perceived lack of effort, and they wouldn't come back. It made it easier to win the matches, but I preferred having the competition to push me.
The skate was eventually absorbed by another group (which still plays Wednesdays/Fridays at CU in Boulder) and the goalies don't get paid. The players hustle much more now, but you can still tell the differences between the absorbed group and the other one.
