Ugh, hate the skilled players who have no problem hacking and holding you but when you put a finger on them, all you hear is them *****ing about how it's a no-contact league.
I'm now suffering a stiff neck because I beat a skilled guy to the puck behind the net, then cut him off in a spinning motion while I wrapped the puck back to the point. It ended up being intercepted by an opposing player and sent out of the zone so I start skating down the ice. The guy I cut off elbows me in the face as he skates by and tries to play it off like it was an accident. I know I'm just an average player in this league, probably a little below average, I've played with plenty of people that suck and I've played with people who have played as high as the ECHL, and not once have I ever seen anybody elbowed in the face. This guy expects me to believe somebody as skilled as him did it by accident...
I tried giving him a few shots cussing at him and he wanted absolutely no part of it. It's bad enough to elbow somebody in the face from behind, it's another to not even be able to man up to your own actions...
I think I may have a target on my head or now something. I got in a bit of a scrum a couple weeks ago with another guy too. I'm surprised we weren't kicked off the ice (just sent to the penalty box.) He was at least cool enough to do what almost every hockey player does in this situation though and meet up after the game to apologize and have some laughs. That's what hockey's all about!
