Much more satisfying to play for 3 league teams to soak up your time. I'll only jump into a drop in if I haven't played in 4+ days.
I'm inclined to agree - the only scrimmage-type skate that I still participate in is with a group of engineers/scientists/professor types who I've been skating with weekly since grad school.

They hustle and work hard, so it's a lot of fun, but the "true" pick-up games just lead to bad habits as a goalie IMHO.

I used to do a pick-up where they would pay the goalies, and it was miserable - the players used that as an excuse for why they weren't hustling back.
