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.
Why can't you play hard and put in your best effort while at the same time not care if you win or not? There are a lot of different variables in play here, for me it's the effort and the competitiveness that makes a hockey game fun. Getting the W, except where it extends your season, is irrelevant.
