It's a classy, polite move, and not a big deal to ease up on the other team if your'e spanking them.
People who run up the score are only thinking of themselves and their stats. Unfortunately, there's too many of those types in beer league hockey.
So why does the burden of maturity fall entirely on the winning side?
Besides, in my personal opinion when you're on the receiving end it's not so much the numbers on the scoreboard that makes the game hard, if the other team is good enough to blow you out chances are you're team isn't going to be in control of the puck very often. As a forward the game isn't as fun when you send most of your game in your own end and your line can barely even get a shot on goal. Keeping the score 7-0 instead of 14-0 isn't going to hide this.
