If not then do as others are saying, move-up a league when ya can...maybe talk to your captain about being on a diff line although I know in beer leagues you just gotta go with who ya got might aggravate captain for you to ask to possibly be the only player to never play with him unless there are others like that then you may just be stuck playin with him here or there.
It is frustrating playing with players of much lower ability and sometimes seem like they are content with where they are at and don't really improve, but thats why it is recreational so not much you can do.
On a good note if they do ever score or make a great play you feel really excited for em. =]
That's the best option. it sucks having a player a lot lower than the rest of the team. BUT if they're working hard to improve and trying to learn and things it makes it easier. The worst players are cocky ones that think they're Crosby or Ovechkin but are actually the worst ones but take no advice!
