    Don't you hate it when you go play pickup hockey and one or both goalies don't show up and you've got to resort to flipping the goal over? Ahhh.

    I am a goaltender but whenever I play roady and there is only one goaltender it really takes alot of the fun out of it (when I am a shooter).

    I guess it doesnt take the fun out of posts because Ive never gone to pick up and seen ONE goalie there :(

    I especially hate when that happens because my friends know I play goalie too, so I always end up having to suit up even if I don't want to. :madfire:

    Agreed. I also HATE playing goal, mostly because I used to do it, but I'm really really bad at it. :madfire:

    i used to play pickup at denver univ., and it was so popular you had to have a pass and call in advance. same for goalies though, and they only allowed 2 goalies to sign up. 2 goalies would sign up first thing in the morning for a night time session and sometimes for a couple weeks in a row you would have 10 on 10 with only one goalie because the jerk who took the spot away from everyone at 7 am didnt show up. that was reaaly annoying, since ten other guys would have loved to have come if whoever had just called and said he wasnt going to make it.

    the shooter tutor is the hardest goalie ive ever played against ;)

    Exactly! When I show up there ready to school everyone and score some goals, I don't want to suddenly find out that I have to forget about that now and just stand there stopping shots. When I want to play goalie, I'm ready to shut everyone down, but when I'm just in the mood to skate by everybody and fire the ball by the goalie and into the net, I want to do just that. :mad: :D
     
  13. I don't know, there are some nights that I think the shooter tutor would be a much better goalie than me :)

    Didn't you see the big disclaimers??? You cannot use real pucks with LeGoalie. If you do, it'll explode like the Hindenburg. What good is a practice goalie if it can't take a puck.

    Its stupid...it randomly moves around...so when its on the right side of the net the whole left side is open....they have to take it to the next step...have a little sensor thing you put onto a puck(a REAL puck..not a junky one...so remake the goalie to withstand a regular hockey puck) so the goalie knows where the puck is and can take the angle of the shot...that way it would be much harder...but thats another 5-10 years away.

    It's got a remote control so someone sitting on the bench or something would be able to control it, pretty cool. Check out the TV commercial for it, it's hilarious, lol: http://www.legolie.net/movies/LeGolie_CTC_DSL.wmv

    Even though you can't use rubber pucks, you can still use those plastic roller hockey pucks so it would be perfect for roller hockey.

    First of all, as an MIT grad who played one season for the varsity hockey team(after years of playing B-league intramural games), I love your avatar. As for playing pickup with one goalie, I've seen it all: the shooter tutor, flipping the net over and shooting into the top(no "ding" allowed), or simply hitting the post(the "ding" is the thing). While the shooter tutor is good for what it says it does, it usually covers the goal too loosely. What's needed is either a small net that fits onto the piping or a tutor-type device that leaves, say, only the extreme upper corners to put a puck in.

    or, just having the goalies show up. Christ, they usually don't even have to pay for the pickup skate - c'mon, all you goalies out there.

    My local rink lets all goalies player for free during pickup, yet they still rarely ever show up.

    From a goalie's standpoint, the only thing worse than one goalie is too many goalies. I have been in situations where there would be four goalies suited up. So we would have to switch every 10 minutes. I hate doing that because I can't get into a good mental groove.
     
  23. I think that only one goalie is worse than too many. When I'm playing against the net or the shooter tutor, I don't take it seriously. If there's another goalie in there, I at least can set up a competition against him for saves. I have a hard time staying focused when i'm the only one since I know I'm doing better than an open net.

    I play pick-up on Long Island and it's always feast or famine. I had one lunch hockey at the Rinx where it was 6 skaters and 5 goalies. We made the goalies play D in full equipment.

    Playing posts is the way to go in this case.
