They don't know how to play the position, the guy I mentioned would be a decent winger, but he generates more offence for the other team as a centerman.

That's the worst thing IMO about beer leagues, it takes years & years of practice to become a really good player, but only a small amount of time to learn (literally hours) about basic hockey strategy & positional responsibility. There is really no excuse for not learning that basic stuff, it's the quickest way to help the team. More competetive divisions can have a pretty broad range of skill vs. athletisicm, but they all 'know' how to play an organized game of hockey.
