0-6 start in net. Considering a break….

It isn’t my worst start ever, but it is a pretty poor one.  I have a 0-2 start on 2 teams, and an 0-1 start on the other two so far this season.  Not a good one, but not entirely my fault as well.  Last session, I was someone who was depended upon to make a key stop or two during the game.  Now, I am depended upon to steal a game.  I guess I am not built for that kind of goaltending.

Shortly before the game today, I had a thought that after this season, I will stop playing entirely for a while.  Not because of the record so far this season.  Mainly because I am tired of the team politics that come with playing.  The people that I grew and got used to playing with are no longer my teammates.  Those people I know have friends who are better goalies than I am.  Maybe a break is needed.  How long of a break is unknown at this point.  I am going to think more about it in the coming weeks and see what transpires when I talk to a couple friends of mine.

    i say just do what you’ve gotta do. weigh the options of staying and quitting, and then go with what makes you happy. even if you stop playing for awhile, you can always find a team to play on later. =]

    we goalies are always needed by some team out there!
