Thanks, but again it seems there is a misconception that mens league means low skill level. That has not been my experience. It varies from novice to the 22 yr olds just finished college/junior, to the 30/40somethings that may have a lost a step, but more than make up for it in 30+ years experience.

Maybe my experience is different than most, but our leagues have plenty of good players and when the puck drops I don't see anyone going half speed because it's "just" beer league.

Don't get me wrong, there are no scouts in the stands, but there aren't for most non mens league games either is my point. I play with plenty of 30-50yr olds that imho are just all around better hockey players than the 18 yr. old puck hogging speedsters that show up at pickup and play JR/Little Flyers or local college teams.

Sorry for the sidetrack.
