Congratulations...Are you going to play in a league this up-coming season?

On the same note. I'm ready for my hockey season to get started. Last year we lost in the 1st round(again, 3 years in a row actually). I think this year is the year for my team.

That I am. Getting the old line back from my State Championship team. Playing in some small "league" that starts next week for the time being.

That's great. Why's it starting so early though?

Games for my league don't get started until September. Our team will start practicing in August, but next week sounds kinda early.

It's only like a 5 game league. Then whoever has the best record play in the championship. Not meant to be long. The real league starts in September I think.

Ok. Gotcha.

I've been thinking about making a switch to defence...I played a couple games on D last year and enjoyed it. Playing defence is a lot more mental then playing forward. You have to use your hockey smarts more then anything else. I want to play defence, but I also like scoring goals.

I have never felt the urge to play defense. Not even a little bit haha. I sometimes had to play the point on the PP and I didn't like that at all. I'm not bad at it but I just have no urge to play it.

I feel like I have more time to create plays on defence. I've got more time to make an outlet pass or skate the puck. I guess I just feel more comfortable playing defence. But like I said, I like scoring lots of goals, so forward is also fun.

Only thing I don't like about defence is the board work in the corners. I'm 5'9 140lbs so I get pushed around down low.

That is true you have more time to create plays. I absolutely love playing forward and I wouldn't pass it up haha. I've always played it and I don't like changing. However if it was to help the team or whatever i'd switch but it hasn't come to that

You're just mad because I'm taller then Shawn.

I'm just a skinny person. I eat a ton of food, but I can never add much weight. I just stay skinny.

I know how that is man. I'm 20 and I can't gain weight to save my life, even hitting the gym and trying to gain muscle mass I still float around 140-145.
