I get the sportsmanship thing but I always feel like an 8 year old going through it. I mean, we just played a meaningless regular season game in a meaningless adult rec league at C level.
I did skip it once, when a guy hit me from behind one shift and then railed me into the boards knocking the wind out of me. This was a no-check league and he got tossed. As he got tossed he skated by the bench and asked how I liked the hit. The guys were running us all night long for no reason, so I skipped the line.
Play and go home. Chat up guys you know on the other team off the ice after the game. Even if nothing bad comes from it, nothing good ever comes from it so what's the point?
