It was fun, everyone was the same skill level on each line...if a 3 or 4 year old was exceptional, then he'd switch onto the older line to make it more fair. I loved it, and that's what kept me into hockey, still play now, 14/15 years later.
Same for me with the 2 minute shifts by age [though it was longer ago than you - mid 1970's to early 1980's].
