I cant stand the "game 7" guys. you know every shift it's do or die. I gotta work tomorrow ya ******. I didn't mind getting slashed or hacked 20 years ago paying youth hockey. but it kinda pisses me off now. I enjoy a good corner battle or fighting for position in front, but do you really need to 2 hand me in the kidney's? for what a tshirt if you win the league?

Doesn't matter what the situation is, if you're up then you're up.
If that means that the weaker players are killing a penalty or on the PP so be it.
We win as a team and we lose as team.
Good for you for what you did.
If we're at the end of a close game and desperately need a goal, we might, MIGHT put out a stacked line, but other than that everyone always gets a fair shake no matter the situation (PP, PK, overtime, etc.).

Wow, some of these stories ring so true.

I just wish guys on my team would consistantly show up. Hardly worth my time to have 2 on the bench, skate my @ss off, and still lose 11-2. Oh, and on a Sunday night, since that's were they stick the 'A' league games.

Last night, we were up 2-1 and trying to hold on to make the playoffs. The 3rd line with the two weakest skaters on the team were out there. We didn't call the line off, but I called off one of the two with 23 seconds left and put the top line winger out there. My justification was threefold 1) 30 seconds left 1 goal game, 2) needed the win to get everyone another game in playoffs and 3) The guy I was putting out there had both goals and they had pulled their goalie... he's never had a hat trick in his life.

Legit or am I an ass?

Thats legit, and I think anyone would understand there. In a situation like that, you want your best players on the ice. Quite different from getting a powerplay in the second period of a regular game, and taking the second or third line off, to but your big guns on "cause its a powerplay" when everyone paid the same. There are one shift exceptions to every rule. If I was a lesser player on a team in a division higher than the one I play in, I wouldnt be offended at all.

That's fair. Everyone has fun for 59 minutes. If it comes down to that last minute and the game is on the line, your make the call and put the top guys out. The guys you're removing will be happier with a win than more time.

edit: I'm sure they'll understand as well. Played hard for 59 minutes and you're only up by one? You want to give your team its best chance at winning.

I was desperate for some hockey one year and basically put my name out for any team that had a spot. Ended up with a team in Division 7, I think, of the Duffers Hockey League in Vancouver. (I usually play Div 1 but thought at least it would be a way to get some skating legs in).

These guys played a full, set-line system. They had their top line which they put out in all key situations, their second line, and their 3rd "checking line". The checking line was where they stuck guys they thought couldn't score. That's where I ended up as the new guy.

It didn't matter if we'd gotten on the ice two seconds earlier. If the other team iced the puck for an offensive zone faceoff, we were called back to the bench so "the top line" could go out. Faceoff in our own end? Back to the bench we go so the top line's "faceoff specialist" could come out. We get on and the other team takes a penalty? Back to the bench so "the top unit" could go on the PP.

It was Division SEVEN. Beer league. These guys sucked.

My last game I got kind of cheesed off. I was ticked not just for myself, but for my two linemates. Here's two guys who at a later age were learning to play hockey, paying the same as the rest of these clowns and playing way, way, way less. So the "second line is out" and the bench notices the other team has some weak guys on the ice. Woop! Better get the top line out there to take advantage. They start calling the second line off. I practically tossed my "checking line" linemates over the boards onto the ice and gave us a shift. I checked the hell out of every opposing player setting up every gimme pass I could for these guys until finally one of them, an awesome, nice guy named Barry, finally managed to swipe one home.

Then I quit.

Anyways, end of that story. One of my big pet peeves is playing with guys who played Junior B. I don't mean the nice guys(who in my experience, are few and far between) who played a high level of hockey and are chill about it. I mean the idiots who played a couple of games of Junior B one year and think they're the cat's you-know-what. Always quick to criticise their teammates, their goalies, etc. "Keep two hands on the stick" "heads up for the pass" "don't throw it up the middle" and then proceed to not follow their own advice.

My favorite is a guy who quite literally will not shut up about how everyone else should carry and move the puck. His play is characterized by getting the puck in his own end, skating wide down the wing until he's practically beside the net and hitting the outside of the post, missing the two or three guys open in the slot. Oi.

Goon teams irritate me as well. It's a beer league...relax.
Wow, that is seriously horrendous, beer league should just be chill and fun.

However, about the junior A/B comment, my current team has a couple guys who played junior B and one who played junior A (don't know about the US, but in Canada junior A is one level below the CHL) and they're all super chill, awesome guys, not at all like your experience playing with junior B players. My whole team is great though, competes hard but everyone is just out to have fun, everyone gets equal ice time regardless of skill, not too chippy, not too harsh on even the worst mistakes, and plenty of post-game beers.

We split up our duties with the captain taking over the admin and general attitude/direction (i.e. keeping things cool, recruiting players, dealing with subs, paying league fees, etc), one forward is the alternate and he's in charge of forward lines and practices, and one defenseman is an alternate and is in charge of D pairings and drills. Works out really well.
Practice, for beer league???

at best, we designated forwards and defensemen. the d have they own preferences for partners and the forwards usually rotate lines. centers are the only things that remain constant. we have 3 capable (2 really) centers for the forward lines (7 max forwards). hot hand takes the face-off.

This post may sound weird after my previous comment about how our team gets blown out all the time. Everybody on our team is new to hockey, and many to skating, and we're playing in a league where each team went through the same things we did, eventually got better.

Yeah we've been blown out every game. So far in the 7 games we've played, we've only lost by less than 10 goals once. But that still doesn't mean we don't want a fair game.

The refs have always been "kind" to us, helpful even. A lot of times they'll call out where we should be, let us know if we have time to move the puck, make other helpful suggestions. They understand some of the guys on the team have been skating for less than 6 months, and are already unstable on their skates. A stiff wind knocks them over, and the refs are quick to send the other team to the box for tripping. The only real difference between our team on the Power Play and our team 5 on 5, is that we actually have a chance of getting the puck out of our zone on the PP.

While we aren't thrilled about the refs calling "bad" penalties in our favor, they've started crossing the line to out and out cheating for us. The rare time we get the puck into their zone, the linesman has started "accidentally" blocking their clearing attempt keeping the puck in the zone. He's also occasionally dropped the puck diagonally, so that it skips off the dot, and right to one of our wingers.

The ref will run interference on their D, in his words "Trying to get into position to see the play" or step over a players stick and trap it between his legs.

I know the refs mean well, and are just trying to help us out (and conversely they seem to be having fun playfully screwing with players on the other team that they know) But it's frustrating. We'd rather just take our lumps and keep learning. And yeah it messes us up too, when we're moving to get in position to grab the puck off of their clearing attempt, only to have the linesman block that attempt.

While the sentiment is nice, we'd just rather have a fairly called (and played) game.

Ya thats an odd one. Maybe just skate up to em before hand or after a call and suggest something friendly. "Hey man we really appreciate all the advice and stuff but don't feel the need to give us calls and stuff, we need to learn the hard way". Should get the job done hopefully.

Take it in stride, no one likes to witness a slaughter, deserved or not. The refs behaviour will fade away as your team gets better. That time will come when the other teams start complaining about the calls. If it's really bugging you, have someone talk to the refs before the game starts, without directly mentioning the fairness of their calls. "Just so you know, we're a new team with a bunch of guys new to hockey and new to skating. We suck.. we know we suck. We're going to get slaughtered today. We can take our beating like men, it won't bother us. I just wanted to let you know you're going to witness a lot of horror stories that you can talk about around the fireplace when you're old men. We want to tell the same stories, so don't worry about the script."

Two of my favorite memories:

"The Sword Fighter"-this guy literally referred to himself as that. The idiot would go around in rec league games shouting he was going to carve you up. He got his.....

"The Toe Dragger"-you've probably seen this guy. Constantly looking down trying to toe drag every other motion. He got his as well.

That's how my teams are. The only time we stack lines/skip people is if there's less than two minutes left and we're down by a goal.

I have been very lucky with the men's league teams I have been a part of. I play in two "A" leagues in NY, one of which is actually comprised of a lot of college/ex-college players and a few guys who played juniors. Of course there's also the guys not up to that level, but all in all it's pretty good hockey as far as men's leagues go. Because the skill level is pretty decent, guy's don't normally look at the games as life and death, because the majority of us have played in much more meaningful games...I personally believe that a lot of the lower levels actually have more dirty play and B.S. because these games are the end-all-be-all for a lot of the players.

Anyway, our team has always prided itself on being a clean team and not stooping to the dirty play, and always have the fewest PIMs by a ton each season, but recently we have one guy who LOVES throwing knees whenever he gets beat...he always says it's a completely fair play and he's just playing the body (non-check, btw), but if a hit like this happened in the NHL it'd be a brawl (and has turned into that in our league twice as well). Lately he's calmed down a lot but Jesus that was frustrating.

Also, I subbed a few games in a lower league in order to play with my dad, and they basically begged me to skate the puck down the ice every time to beat the other team, which I refused to do and instead just played a very conservative defensive game where I didn't do much skating. I really couldn't believe how crazed they were about playing certain players and trying to introduce certain schemes...I mean these guys could hardly skate and the skill level was so low, I couldn't believe that any one person on the team would be critical towards any other player, but they were, and they were harsh.

I'm a beginner and playing in the lowest level possible. What is the most annoying part is the ringers. We've lost most of our games this season and only won once last season. Most teams with the exception of a few have ringers on the roster who often play in better divisions.

It's no fun when the ringer scores two or three quick goals and skate circles around us. It may be a close game and the ringer may have been hanging back but when things get a little too close then they explode.

Don't get me wrong, I know playing against players better than me is part of learning the game but at a somepoint it's just not fair. I don't mind loosing a game, I do mind not having a fair chance to win the game.

Noone enjoys those guys. When I first joined up playing for first time in beginner league I was obviously the better skater out there...but Id always look for pass first when I was playing, why be a ****** and just blast by everyone everytime you touch the puck? Its like if you are going to play in a league where you are above the level for it, it should be a GIVEN that you play to the level and dont be an ass and just bust out goals cause your team needs em.

I should clarify; I've met some tremendously cool, relaxed Junior B/A vets. For the most part, the guys who actually played at that level(or higher) on a regular basis are very down to earth, unselfish guys on the ice and good, friendly guys in the room.

The guys I refer to are usually the guys that played 1 or 2 games at that level and think that this makes them better than everyone else. You can see the components that got them a look at that level for sure; good size, smooth skating, nice puckhandling, etc...but it's put together in a pretty selfish package, and they are non-stop talkers on the bench, on the ice and in the room, and it's not all positive. That's been the majority of my experience with ex Junior types, unfortunately.

And I agree 100%, beer leagues should just be fun. I can honestly live with the guy who takes long shifts here and there, but when it's a whole team mentality trying to be "pro" when it's recreational and (supposed to be) fun, it's just sad.

When teams pick their craziest member to be captain.

In my beginner league, captains are chosen at the very beginning of separating people into teams. This is done mainly so the league has a contact person to pester your team into getting appropriate jerseys, etc.

Half of the players haven't played at all, half since high school. Perhaps two or three out of 40 have played on an adult league team in the past decade. Since no one knows each other, the captaincy goes to the guy with the loudest self endorsement, simply "I've been on a team like this before" works. (sidebar: I got the C because I brought beer to the second practice, before we were divided up. There are worse ways of choosing...)

One of the teams we play often was unlucky enough to have a guy who was rumored to have been kicked off prior league teams. Instead, he just tells everyone "I've been in this league before" and gets the C. Well, he's *that guy* on the ice. Chippy, wordy, progressing to cheap shots and lots of PMs as his disorganized team gets further behind on the scoreboard. This guy landed a legitimate elbow drop on my best player (who weighs all of 150lbs soaking wet) about 15 seconds after a play ended in front of the net, as my guy was getting off the ice.

The worst thing is that all but one other guy on his team would normally qualify as good people, but this class act gets his whole team riled up each game. An excellent example of how one guy can ruin a squad.

Ok so I joined a 2nd team, in the bottom division, in my roller hockey league this season because my brother decided to pick up roller again after not playing for ~8 years (he last played at between 12 and 14 yrs old). So I figured I'd help him out and get a chance to play with my bro.

I played D1 club roller hockey in college before blowing my knee out, and when I started up again 2 years later I joined a division I knew I could ease my way into, because it was below the level I had played at. So now I'm still with my D7 team (where I averaged over 3 goals a game last season) because I became friends with the guys and have a good time playing with them. I'm probably a D5 player (D3 and up in my league is generally all current/former pro/semi-pro players) who's playing on a D9 team now with my brother, they've got me playing defense. Excluding me and my bro, maybe 2 out of the 7 other guys didn't look like they just picked up hockey within the last year.

I was told (by the captain) to rush the puck and score us some goals until we got a lead. So I rushed the puck pretty frequently, but still made passes trying to set up people standing at the net for tip ins. Then I found out from my brother, that when I left the locker room after our first game one other guy (who was previously the best player on the team) complained about me rushing the puck to the captain, and a couple other people chimed in about it.

So...what to do? I had planned on staying back and playing a solid game, because I don't want to seem like the guy that joins lower leagues just to beat up on them and seem great. But then it turns out I might be on the worst team in the division...and nobody likes to lose. So I tried to rush the puck, but still changed it up between passing and shooting, and then find out people don't like it. And I even kept it pretty conservative until we fell behind by 3 goals.

if when that statement was made the Captain didn't speak up and let them know that he told you to do it, he's a tool. finish out the session and your brother and you should move on.
