The team I sub for also doesn't put me out there during "crucial" situations, we just rotate through the lines.

One thing I've noticed is that I do notice that I skate at almost 100 percent when playing down a level, which I sometimes feel bad about. I really like playing down and getting a goal or two and some assists cause in the league I play in I'm only mediocre and rarely get an opportunity to put the puck on net as a defensemen.
Yeah Gibs, this wasn't meant for guys like you because:
  1. You're a sub, not rostered in the lower level
  2. You actually feel bad when you go all out
  3. You don't try to personally influence the outcome of the game

I don't think there's anything wrong with playing down if you have friends/family on the team and you are just filling in.
