I say go for it, I don't think it will take much to get your skating back.

I'm in a similiar predicament. I started playing in a pretty competitive rec league 2 years ago after a 7 year layoff and quickly found out I'm not the player I used to be either. I didn't so much lose my skating tecnique but I lost my speed, stamina, hands, periphial vision, shot, ect, ect....

I've had games where I got a bit discouraged, thinking I can't help like I used to but after 2 years it's slowly starting to come back

I'm 39 now playing against a bunch of speedy 20 year olds. I'm a defensive defensman now after I used to be a power type winger. The point is when you get involved in a close, hard fought, give your all type game, there is no better feeling and I know for me personally anyways I'm glad I persevered when it would have just as been as easy to say I can't cut it anymore.
