If you're whole team has to slow down for you... I don't know if any team would want to play with you.
Unless they need spot fillers to meet league fees, which luckily for you most beer leaguers require.
At the end of the day, skate as a team. Bust your ass to join the rush; and don't complain that your teammates don't pass to you because you're always behind on the play when the onus is on you to join; because the opposing defense is not going to wait for you.
That's why in MOST cases in hockey; player who don't skate... or choose to coast into offensive/defensive plays usually get *****ed at. (yes, even at beer league). That's the reality of the game.
