My rule for beer league is if you are far enough for them to set and wind up, just let them have the shot.
If you can close them down and they get a weak wrister off, I'll stand in the way more often than not. Had at least ten blocked shots one game and the goalie didn't mind.
In beer league I only ever attempt to poke the puck away on the windup. If I can't get it I'm getting the hell out of the way. When I was a teenager I'd be in front of that shot no problem. Nowadays wearing a cast for a month just doesn't seem as cool.
