Agreed. I've been playing for about 2 years now. Im 29 and i think I'm learning quickly but still I'm one of the worst players on my team and my advice to ANY beginner is simply to ask for pointers from the team. The first thing I did was ask one of the better players to watch my positioning when he was on the bench and I was skating. Explain that you know its not his job to be your trainer but that its hard to watch yourself and your mistakes-most guys take it as a compliment. If you ask the right guy They'll help you pick up the little things youre doing wrong better than any book or message board. Theres nothing better than having a friend/coach combo on the team especially if its someone who'll pat you on the back as fast as he'll call out your fumbles.
