How do int/adv players REALLY feel about n00bs on the ice?

Depends on the person.
At best I'm a D level player for rec league who didn't start playing hockey until his teens, so when I play with guys from E or absolute beginner leagues I can really sympathize. I try to share the puck as much as possible and will offer advice to anyone who seems open to learning something new. Some guys just want to go out there and do their best Sean Avery impersonation. I leave those guys alone.
When I play with guys better than me I find that it's a mix... some guys will give you pointers and try to feed you the puck if you make an effort to get open in the right position, and others will completely ignore the fact that you're on the ice and only pass to the guys who are, in their eyes, as good as they are.
