Had a teammate go into the boards and break his arm. The other team's bench practically cleared with everybody jumping off it to rush and see if he was ok.

The class of the people I play with, and against, are the reason I play.
Exactly, everyone is paying to play, not getting paid to play. No need to be a dbag, it's not "win at all costs" like it is in more competitive hockey, it's "play very hard, but in a clean/respectful way."

And despite some of the beer league horror stories you hear, like you I play on a team full of awesome guys, and generally our opponents are great too. Very few show-offs/dirty players/"agitators" in the league I play in.
