This is a pertinent question. If he's rubbing everyone on the team the wrong way, there is definitely an issue there. You certainly want to play and have fun, and if he wants good players around him, maybe he should go to a higher division rather than trying to be a man among boys in a beginner league.
There's always going to be guys who offer criticism, constructive or not, on any team. The grass could always look greener, but you could also try levelling with him. Maybe even tell him what you've told us--you're trying your hardest and you're happy to get off the ice without having wiped out. He might not realize that he's coming across a little harshly and might even shape up as a result.
Of course the opposite is true as well; he could see nothing wrong with what he does and tell you to stuff it. In which case, if you're unhappy on the team, maybe it's time to find a new one if no one shares your feelings on the matter.
