You'll love this one; he plays on my team - and he was there that night. Even better, a coach who works under him is on the team we played and I am friendly with both, as they are super-nice guys, and are working hard to build something.

Their problem - which is understandeable - is that the rink just opened and the hockey league is in its infancy, so they cannot afford to **** off people. Only 60 signed up for the league to begin with.

They are trying to establish the rink which is only a year old and continue to grow, which if they told the other teams they had to be split up b/c there wasn't enough players to have divisions - alot of them may have said "no thanks" and went to a different rink.

Since there were no divisions, the beginners like me were thrown onto the ice with the D1s, and since 3 of the 4 teams were made up of experienced players who joined as friends, my team (which as i said includes the hockey director who is one of the only 3 good, experienced players on the team) would be comprised primarily of noobs. We have 6 noobs and 3 good players, that's it - so we got creamed.

I still love to play even if we get smoked, and some have said I showed improvement during the season. For me its hard to tell as i feel no more confident now than i did before, but i'll keep working on it.

The next season starts in a few weeks, and supposedly there will be 3 divisions, one of them being a beginner one for scrubs like me...

Can't wait to play and dangle the few noobs worse than me
