Some of the teams in that league started the season with very much beginners - one team wasn't quite sure how to line up for the face-off at their first game, and the refs had to give them a quick lesson! Put those guys up against a sandbagging team with good players and it becomes not much fun really quickly. The team I'm on has a mix of guys who have only been playing hockey since last summer and some who played growing up, so we are actually doing really well for a new team.
It can happen when the teams been playing so long together that they've all gotten old together
That's more or less what's going on with the second team I'm playing on at the moment, which I just joined this winter season. I think the team's been around for about 10 years but you lose a key guy here or there and your long time core players start hitting 40+ then the teams going to fall off a cliff.
