afenigenov is kind of a ******

we have a few ex pro players and they dont go all out all the time. this one guy could probably score 10 goals a game, and several times has been "traded" to teh other team mid game beacuse they were losing so badly (a few times they came back and won) but he usually just skates past everyone and passes tape to tape back hand saucers to everyone intead of shooitng

I played with Scott Thornton once right before he retired, and he blew me away. Just watching him casually play with the puck while talking to the other skaters was amazing, even more so when he started to run some drills. And this is Scott Thornton I'm talking about - a good, but not great grinder that was at the tail end of his career.

There used to be a house team here in SJ that a lot of current and former Sharks would play with in the off season. Guys like Mark Smith and Owen Nolan would have three games played but lead the league in scoring against guys that had played 15 games.

If they made the NHL because of their superior athletic abilities, they will dominate pick up games.

If they made the NHL because of their superior hockey sense, they will look great, but may or may not dominate.

Fixed.

For most pick-up games you're talking about guys who never played at a high level.
