And of course I took it as a huge insult. I guess what I love about hockey is just the competition and teamwork, if I have no real team and nothing to play for but fun, then I'm not motivated.
I do go to public sessions, not as often as I would like though. Mostly because I have nobody to tell me if I'm doing something wrong or to show me something new. That's all stuff I can get with a team. No point in practicing if you're doing it all wrong.
But even though he's not trying, you're still practicing working on your moves. There's nothing like the competition of a game that really counts for something, but I like to use open hockey to try things out that I wouldn't normally do in a game or even have time for in a game. I hold onto the puck longer, make a riskier pass, etc.
