Play D, I'm god awful at passing so I if I can make a decent pass like most people on here are talking about then hell yeah I would be chuffed with that. I'm 6'1 and 175 lbs - so you would expect at least average hitting from me, but not at all as I seem to have zero technique. Apart from the obvious pleasures, like scoring etc, I would have to say I really enjoy some defensive parts of the game -
Stick checking one of those cocky players with a smile on his face who thinks he will blaze by and own me.
Skating like hell after a player on the other team who has a breakaway and diving to stick check him successfully (always seem to hear the crowd cheer for that )
Blocking shots. I always try do this no matter what... must be some masochistic thing I have going on...
Seeing 'challenged players' score, improve or make a good play. I always let them know they've done a good job - "**** YEAH man you OWNED that guy! I mean I know he can hardly skate but..." etc
I love scoring...but I get the most enjoyment out of winning of course like a lot have said. But honestly, my favorite thing is to get under the opponents skin. I like to get in their way and do all the little things- in a clean manner- that eventually make them want slash me or scream at me. I love it cause I know I'm taking them away from their game and also gives our bench stuff to laugh about, heheh.
