Probably the biggest source of problems on the bench is guys dishing out advice or criticizing other players' games. I can't tell you how many times I've been out there breaking up a play on defense and moving the puck back out and I get back to the bench and my D partner for that shift tells me what I did wrong. Excuse me? I broke up the play and made a good pass to get our guys into their end.

Actually, now that I think about it, the best players on our team never give advice while the worst skaters are always telling everybody what they did wrong.

Aside from that, skate at the level you should be skating. There's nothing more frustrating than "getting stuck" with the guy who can't skate backwards or doesn't ever play defense because he's friends with the rest of the team. And it's also incredibly frustrating when you're playing against a team with a hot dog who can score five goals a night skating and dangling through your entire team.
