it generally is when I'm turning and they are turning we end up turning into each other... or one turns into the skating path of the other. Anyone else have this problem ?
As you progress upward through different leagues you will stop seeing so many people go for the puck and start playing their own positions. When 10 people go for a loose puck there is a greater chance to run into people. If the center goes for a loose puck in the center of the ice and his wings stay along the boards where they belong so the center can pass to them after he gets the puck, he won't run into them.
It's just a product of inexperience and it will gradually happen less and less as you and teammates gain experience.
