Official Adult Hockey League Talk

I figure it would be easier if we use this to talk about our league games and rink talk.

Nem, Wild, can we sticky this?

I've decided to come out of retirement in the next couple weeks after having not stepped foot on the ice in almost 4 years.

I'm both excited for it and dreading it at the same time.

Good idea REM.

I might go to Gretzky tomorrow. But I might play some roller pick up in order to get a little conditioning. I don't think I am quite at the ice pick up level yet (or at least where I want to be in order to play it)

yeah, I was never a football person or rugby for that matter (aside from watching it).

I played basketball, baseball and soccer up until high school. Started hockey a couple years before high school and it eventually took over all my time.

awesome! When I started 3 years ago I barely knew how to skate. At least you'll have some foundation!

god I wish I could hit up more Gretzky hours. I'm gonna have to ditch work one of these days and go to one. Other than my games, I try to at least play pickup once a week.

you were the one who told me about the pickup you play I believe (can't check my pm's).

I am going to start playing pick up soon but I just want to be at a certain level first.

yeah I was. Don't worry about your level, trust me. There's a few of them who go to the session I told you about that can hardly skate and/or puck handle. You'll catch up WAY faster when you scrimmage.

yeah, I have been practicing a bunch during the Gretzky's lately and will probably start playing pick ups next week. Maybe I will play in that one next week

I played lunch time dropin today and trust me (no offense to anyone here) none of us on this thread can keep up with 3/4's of the guys out there. All ex college, home from college or just straight bad ass hockey players. They were only playing at 1/2 speed and still whooped ass.... I play DD at Logitech Ice and I am ok at that level, but playing against these guys makes me feel like an EEE player.

So, don't worry about getting your level of play up. It's more about skating and trying to work on things you wouldn't do in a game. There is no real "team" play at drop in's anyways. If you play D, you could work on positioning one on one's, or two on one's. If you are a forward you learn how to be ready for a pass from anywhere

Good idea in the thread by the way

I started playing when I was 5, so hopefully my body hasn't forgotten how to skate at least.

Those are my favorite pickups, by far. Not that I enjoy getting sniped in every possible way, but I do enjoy the challenge and it helps my footwork and reactions a ton.

Believe me, I know. I start sweating after drumming a couple songs in rock band. This isn't going to be pretty.

I'd also be willing to bet my silky smooth hands are now about as smooth as coral.

Yeah, nothing like hockey to make you realize how out of shape you might be in.
