I don't know how people don't realize this themselves... I can understand a ringer playing in the tip-top league of an Adult League organization (A1 or what have you).. but it's when the average A1/B1 players start playing in the C/C2 or even D leagues that it starts to have an effect on the quality of the game. In the lower levels, you have guys that are either just learning (like me) or even just guys that aren't that good... so adding in a lifer who played AAA travel hockey and then Jrs or whatever takes the fun AND competitiveness out of it. I want to be competing against people within my skill level or even 1 level above my skill level. Even when these guys are "taking it easy" they STILL have a huge impact on the game.
