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

We have two guys that were on our team six years ago back for this year. One of them looked like a giraffe on skates, tall, gangly, awkward, etc. Since he left the team he's played a few seasons, hasn't taken any lessons or worked AT ALL, but he's actually been really solid and reliable. Sure he could use some softer hands and better agility, but he's been fairly speedy going up ice and makes good decisions.
His thing is he's always had a great attitude, people like him, and nobody gets down on him when he does mess up because he knows his limitations and usually doesn't make the same dumb mistakes over and over.
The other guy...well he was a pretty solid player and is still solid, maybe even better, but he's kind of got a bad attitude when we're losing and it's a bit grating. Great clutch scorer though.
