A love for the game. The most important quality in a leader (at that level) is someone who wants to have FUN!
My pops has told me stories of a guy that ran his over 30 team and was a complete ass. He was always trying to give advice and criticism yet he was one of the least skilled players out there. Blaming teammates, barking orders from the bench. He ruined the season for several people. One time a pro named Sheldon Kennedy showed up to play and this guy says.."so what position do you play?" He took himself way too serious.
There are no NHL scouts at beer league games I'm sure you've noticed. I don't even think the point is to win...it's to have fun. With the age of the players I am with (20-72), we are just thankful to be alive at the end of a game!
