I've seen guys dog it all season. We had a good, sponsored team, good mix of guys, some great players on defense and we get to the playoffs and a guy drops 8 goals on us. I've been playing hockey for 19 years so it's not a scrub division, probably equal to a low A or high B for Southern California and I've never seen anybody score 8 goals in a playoff game. We all want fair and balanced teams but you also have some personalities that are win at all costs. Then you have the dilemma that faces some rink managers-do I move guys around to make things fair but will lose teams and money? And when you've been playing at the same place for a long time I can honestly say I would refuse to play on certain teams because I can't stand some of the guys on other teams.
