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.
Truth.

Its funny on our team we have a Palestinian guy who played his first game ever a couple of days ago everything in between to a Slovak who used to play with Zdeno Chara whos just awesome to watch.

The Slovak guy is so smart when it comes to positioning and something i mentioned to the noob was the importance of positioning as a lot of the guys lack the basics.
