I've really learned to let up on these types of guys, you're not going to change people's personalty's by yelling at them at beer league games. I'm man enough to change teams or rinks and find guys who have similar drive to what I have and that's where I'm comfortable. As of right now though I'm on a team that needs my help and 90% of the team needs to move down but that would mean moving from Sunday's to weeknights meaning they won't be able to play hockey anymore. And that's one of the reasons why I work hard to continue to get better at hockey at 39 years old-I know one day I won't be able to play hockey anymore but until then I'm going to give it my all to help the team win games so that when my time comes I'll be able to look back and know I didn't half ass it.
I think that's more or less why I can play at the higher levels but can't cut it as a ringer at the lower ones. I'm in my 5th year and still loving every minute of it, and personally I'm having the most fun when I'm panting for breath on the bench after each shift. My hockey IQ is also half decent. On the other hand I just don't have the puck skills required to deke through people, protect the puck, or slow the game down.
