How about a D level player trying to carry the puck into the zone against an A level defenseman? That's no way to learn the game.
To the OP: Honestly, your situation sucks in my opinion. I would look to join a league with actual divisions that at least somewhat separate players of different skill. If there are no other league around then I guess you just have to deal with it... which would suck and I'd feel bad for you =\.
You shouldn't feel bad for anyone. Players who start playing hockey as an adult are going to face players that have played the game since they were kids. It's something they just have to deal with until they get better. It's not a sport you can pick up and be good at in a matter of weeks.
