If there's one thing I absolutely cannot stand, it's a guy who is just there to goof around and give a half-assed effort. Putting aside whether you take the league seriously, you owe it to your teammates (and the other team for that matter) to play hard and give your best effort at winning. Even if you're a D-league plug. Uncompetitive players diminish their teammates and waste everyone's time, energy and money.
In the most simplistic way of saying it, you can play adult hockey competitively, but adult hockey is not competitive hockey.
