Then when it's game time and my team is the lowest scoring team in the league for 3 straight seasons they can't figure out why. If you don't want to do what it takes to either stay a decent hockey player or improve guys should voluntarily move down divisions until they are at the bottom where you can just show up and play and nobody cares. I can count the number of times I've heard a guy say he's moving down because he can't hang anymore on one hand.
Easy there Gary Roberts!

Ice time isn't cheap and can be hard to find. Since getting a 9-5 job it's been damn-near impossible to hit the ice more than once a week.

As one of those defensively-minded centres (mostly due to the fact that I suck offensively) I take great pride in working my butt off to shut down the ringers.
