..... but hey it worked pretty well the FIRST time we tried it and there's enough hockey players on this board that we should be able to make this work at least once!!! I know a few of you guys do play regualrly, and it would be fun (and get me playing regularly again, since my "friends" are weak and like softball better) if we gave the old NJ Devs hockey league a shot again.... not to mention with the holiday weekends of now and July 4th coming... it's as good a time as ANY to give it a shot.....

... anyone in ???
There's a nice rink here in Roseland as well as the one DF26 showed me in Hoboken as well as the classic original rink in Woodbridge but other ideas are welcome too!!

I saw CRASHER trip a kid on skates and then he stole the kids lunch money and slapped his mom when she came to pick him up.. All because the kid looked at his crease

I'd play, but does our age matter at all? If you are pressed for players I could probably bring a friend or two, we usually play hockey once every week/couple weeks over the summer anyway and are always looking for more.

I'd love to play, and I just started a few weeks ago in a roller hockey league, but unfortunately, there's that minor issue of the 200 mile drive to get there... :argh:

I wish more people played around here. We used to play every day as kids back up in Albany. :saddevil:

Age matters not just like with women :P
All you need to be is willing to play... we don't play contact or anything... and we usually don't even use a puck cause the surface in woodbridge is not good enough for it (and I get to have more fun trying for assists that way, though I was averaging 2 a game with the puck in Hoboken :lol:)

I'd love nothing more then to get a nice weekend game going all the time!!!

Yeah, but I'm not in Albany any more - Maryland is over 3 hours, over 4 if there's any traffic. Fortunately, my gear doesn't stink yet. I had to buy all new gear when I started playing in the league, so it all smells pretty new. I don't think I could stand 3 hours in a car with old gear. :puke:

Keep me updated, and in turn I'll let you know when we're playing hockey. Too many of our group doesn't own skates though so our regular games are almost always on foot.

I will.... and it doesn't matter to me I don't skate in goal and we've played hybrid (skates and non-skates in the same game it does work kinda well too!!)

anyone want to try to set a date for this??

i'm heading down to play a game with devilsfan26 soon.

as for this, my friend and i might be able to come...usually we like to play forwards and dmen have skates and goalies can have skates or shoes.

i can't do anything outside of goalie.

my friend and i use to play with skates and shoes people. it's fun just for the fact that it's hockey, but on one level it's kind of annoying because shoed people can just stop and go. i don't want to sound like i'm bashing anybody, becuase if i played anything outside of goalie i would play with shoes. its jsut my experience that facing shooters with skates is much more fun. cause sometimes guys on shoes do this retarded thing on breakaways where they basically run really fast and close to you then stop in front and run back and forth until there is an opening, i can't describe it all that well, but as long as the person is modestly agile and has a long reach they can score every time if they don't miss the net.

Hahahaha...long overdue. Now they need to get rid of Jacobs.


The problem is, NJ only plays them 4 times a year. We were only able to get them to trade JT and fire the idiot GM. If we played them 8 times a year, maybe Jacobs might have an epiphany and sell the team.

the way I've seen it is with shoes and skates they balance each other out (and we usually divide them equally too)

Skaters tend to be faster and can out run and outlast walkers... but walkers have the turning radius

I don't care cause I am always in goal too... last time I played forward I almost killed someone with a slapshot :P
