Whoa, I was trying to figure out what you were talking about, then I read my first post over. I meant to say 8 MONTHS not years. I played in a pick up league last summer, last time I played an actual game was like April 2004.
God...it is amazing how one can confuse himself so much. I just looked at the first post again and realised I just worded it horribly. What I was saying is, last season was the first in 8 years that I did not play any form of organized hockey.
