If you can outthink an app whose only purpose is to most efficiently settle debts amongst people who spend various amounts and participate in various activities we may have a spot for you

What app do you use for that? Legit question. I use TeamSnap for my sonís team but havenít tried to use the money functions of it yet.

Hockey is a game where you simultaneously have more time than you think you do, but also are making decisions in a matter of seconds.

I did learn, as a goalie, nobody gives a gently caress what you say in between periods. The game started being a lot more fun when I quit being a cheerleader and just focused on stopping the puck and directing traffic from the net when appropriate. Number one object is to just have fun in rec league.

The better amateur goalies I see do a lot of verbalizing to help their defense men know when they can pressure a forward and when they need to protect as the goalie may often have better situational awareness due to not being right in the battle. The one that comes to mind yells ďpushĒ to get his guys to pressure, ďchipĒ to get rid of the puck when they are getting forechecked and is always pointing out free guys in front

I'm pretty sure goalies just start doing this as soon as the game starts and only stop when it ends. I think you can also get them to shut up by throwing a blanket over them but that's just a rumor I heard idk

We use TeamSnap for league payments when everyone owes me.

We use KittySplit when different people pay and owe different things.

My teams moved to BenchApp because the guys that run one of them are friend with the guy who made/makes it. They hate that I complain that it needs work still.

Sorry we moved to BenchApp as well. Itís fine but itís a higher level team meaning there are fewer brain cells for teammates to know how to use it.

My problems with it is multi team support, you have to click too deep to check in and out of games and even see game times and such for more then one team.

The best goalie Iíve played with as a defenseman would basically narrate the play in this really calm voice, giving sort of mild instructions and then announcing when the puck was clear. I was never sure if he was more talking to us or himself.

Also, for the panic thing, again as a dman I spent a few games really purposefully trying to make plays rather than just getting rid of the puck, even if I had someone on me. I definitely screwed up and lost it a couple times when I shouldnít have, but I did have a coach that would always say itís better to lose it one on one and then fight to get it back then it is to make a poo poo pass and just give it away. Learning to battle for the puck is really tough at lower level play.

- FUCK THE HABS -


speaking of defense: was looking at the box score from sunday's game and didn't even realize we killed off ~1:32 of 6-on-3 to squeak out a 4-3 win. I played all of that and totally forgot they yanked their goalie so hey that feels pretty good.

The only "bad" part was that I had my head down, forgot the goalie was yanked and probably had a decent attempt at an ENG, but did a big ol' dump to get it out of our zone instead. When I looked where the puck was headed only then did I notice a big ol empty net taunting me. Hooray awareness!

At open skate today, an older guy got onto the ice and within about 4 strides he was doing the gonna-fall-backwards arm flails. He fell flat on his back and his head slammed onto the ice. I rushed over to him, he was conscious, but there was a steady stream of blood dripping to the ice, so I told him not to move and I went to get help at the front desk. By the time the manager had gotten his latex gloves on, the other skaters had moved him off the ice. He didn't seem too dazed and declined an ambulance. I hope he at least went to the doctor after getting patched up.

I feel really bad for him. It's the time of year for New Year's resolutions, I've never seen him at the rink before, and he was pretty out of shape, so I'm betting he was all gung-ho about starting something new and he made it about 1/8 of a lap before it all came crashing down.

"The fucking Mayans were right."

That's a bummer, though I'm surprised more people don't get seriously hurt at open skates. I bet there are a lot of ankle injuries.

e: When I was learning to skate and going to open skates I saw 1 broken leg (or something, had to be stretchered off and it took a long time), one faceplant with tooth damage, and one ankle something.

I can't tell you how many times I've had to pirouette around kids who just skate across the ice without any notice of full size adults. A buddy of mine wants to start skating and I keep telling him there's no shame in wearing pads while you're learning.

The one and only useful thing I developed from my time taking karate in high school was how to fall properly. Always tuck your head if you're falling backward. It still seems pretty ingrained and I feel really lucky because of it.

He should do a basic learn to skate (not hockey specific) class. The one around here was like 6 Saturdays and you got one free admission to an open skate per week to practice, and it only cost like slightly more than just going to that many open skates.

A youth coach in the States slipping and cracking his head (can't remember if he died or just had long term brain injuries, but yeah it was bad), is the reason all youth coaches have to wear helmets now.

I remember one of my brother's coaches taking a slapshot right in the face during practice once, his nose was just destroyed. And then there was https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KEc6KL85M_o

The one I go to is adults-only open skate, so fortunately there are no kids to weave around. I'm always out there for open skate in full pads and even though most people are just wearing street clothes, there are about 5 of us that regularly show up in full gear. I'm learning to skate so I can play hockey, so I might as well learn to skate in the same gear I'll be wearing during games.

I like the look of the shoulder pads, looks almost like a girdle setup. I'm curious how they fit.

Early on Verbero gloves got terrible reviews for the inner lining shredding or straight up not being stitched properly. They're still around so maybe it got fixed but buy cautiously.
