Or is it just older guys who realize it's just a game and all that extra crap just isn't worth it because they have families to go back to.

Obviously they're not ALL young, you still get head cases at all ages but the percentage drops down drastically. I'd say that with all the guys I've played that are under 30, about a third of them are deuchebags (it's sad really.) Out of everybody over 30, it's easily less than 1%, let's just say that out of all of them that I played with, I've only seen 2. Although it's kind of funny because I'm the youngest most places I play (I'm 23 but didn't start playing hockey until 17) and I get along much better with the older guys. Probably because they're joking around as much as I am while the younger guys take it too seriously.
I think you need to apologize to that guy for elbowing him in the elbow with your face . . .

I kid, I kid, I hate it when guys act like a beer league game is the 7th game of the SC Finals
