This thread is for all the ridiculous and often confusing behaviour we see at our local arenas. I'll start with parents who spend thousands on equipment and thousands more on skating clinics and summer hockey programs to make their son the best player possible yet they reward him after every practise and game with a large pepsi, chips and chocolate bar. Does it ever occur to them that dragging an extra thirty pounds up and down the ice is affecting his play? Also there is the player I affectionaly call "Shotgun". Every team has one guy who must take 50 shots during the warm up. Skate? No. Stretch? No. Pass? God Lord No. He needs to be prepared for that one wrister from the blueline he'll end up taking.
