I'm curious what this "really great beer league" in Vancouver is though.
Coast Hockey League. Generally evenly matched teams within each division (helps that they have around a dozen divisions, and re-seed you into the proper division after 8ish games, makes it easy to get teams well matched), most teams seem to be full of pretty good guys with fairly minimal chippiness/B.S. (beside the expected shoving/odd hit/bits of stickwork), and free parking Not perfect or anything, it's all the way in Richmond, many refs clearly want to just go home at times and go into "call nothing, not even icings" mode, and the length of the 3rd period is not fixed, but overall I've been loving it, fairly well run league with teams made up of mostly good guys who compete hard without crossing the line too often.

I think I'd just let him get his a$$ kicked 1 on 5.
I'd probably join in with the other team and make it 1 on 6 after a play like that

Maybe I've just been lucky to play in a really great beer league, but for the most part I think most claims of beer league toughness come from guys who have never played competitive, full contact minor hockey, who thus lack some perspective in terms of how rough hockey really can get when you up the stakes and allow contact. Obviously a 2 hander to the head like the one that started this thread is pretty awful, but in 99% of beer league games that I've seen the chippiness is basically just a bit of pushing/shoving, minor hooks and minor slashes, nothing like the dirty hits from behind, high cross checks and other fairly brutal plays that are a fairly common part of competitive, full contact, minor league hockey.
Most of the beer league teams we play against aren't so bad. But there are some guys who tend to get chippy.

I don't mind a little bit of body contact, but the thing that gets me mad quick is hacking, slashing and any kind of stickwork.

A few games ago when I had my hat-trick, I had gone into the corner to get a puck and this guy was going crazy with his stick. Needless to say I shoved him.

Some guys just don't know the difference between baseball and hockey.

it may not have happened in the LNAH, but the kid probably earned himself a contract for next season.

Is it bad that I find this humorous? In all reality, that was ********. What are you thinking man. Seriously, your in a beer league and a seemingly low quality one at that. Just a ******** move.

He should be arrested for assault with a weapon and thrown in jail.

That's simply disgusting.

I like how the little guy gives him multiple stick taps as if he wants to fight.

Getting pretty off topic here, but depending on summer vs winter, and who's on the team for the season, we've been div 4 to div 7. Most guys on the team are sort of in the ex-HS, ex low level rep, or ex good house league level, but depending on whether we have more noobs, or more ex Jr A/B ringer types we've been up or down division wise a bit. Our team this summer should be pretty strong, probably div 2-3, but out of only 5 divisions in the summer vs more like 12 in the winter.

That guy would have had a parking lot session with me. Inexcusable behavior in any league.

He probably should have gotten an assault charge.

it's really sad and pathetic that a human being could be that insanely stupid, and have absolutely no regard for another person. why should it be fair for you to have to suffer (both physically, and not being able to play the game) because some other person decided to act like a total POS? people like this should be severely beaten by a large group of people..........with sticks.

No link, sorry. Like I said in previous posts, I am local. The stories regarding that incident are all over in rival leagues...(which I play in)
