@uncleodb - Didnt read if you were in beer league or not, but youll find almost noone likes to play D in them. This leads to people just not caring, or not aware of what they need to do, so as a legit dman you will get hung out to dry alot, but no worries your goalie will feel that pain too so you arent alone!
I started playing hockey when i was in college, so I have only played non-competitive recreational hockey for 10+ years now. I have joined a low level league starting in the fall (first time for me). You're right on; since I've been playing non-competitively, I'm hung out to dry alot. I'm hoping this will change though with the league.
