Since the beginning of the beer league I joined for the summer and that I am on D; I'd rather have five players on D than four (I'd rather have six on D than 5). If you only have four D, then your D men get more ice time, but less time to recharge. Having five D, you get a little more rest than four D. Having six D is ideal since you have steady lines and more time to recharge. I know that some guys might say they'd rather have more ice time, but it's a beer league and not everyone is in prime shape or have top end endurance. The age range on our team is from 18 to 49.
