Youve obviously never played golf. $2000+ for a quality set of clubs, $200 for a bag, $50 per dozen for quality set of golf balls not to mention $50+ for each round of golf. Hockey is a cheap sport, IMO. For rec league play you can spend about $500 on low-end equipment and have everything youd ever need.
To the OP, Id suggest going to public skate for a while to remember how to skate again before you throw yourself to the wolves. If you cant skate, you cant play hockey. Once you can skate forwards, backwards, stop and balance on 1 foot, youre ready for hockey. Some people think that crossovers are important but I see plenty of people are drop-in who dont do crossovers.
