    Stick Length for 5'9" son?

    No doubt. I just know that when I started hockey that height was always mentioned but rarely flex. Now, the first Easton Synergy came out 1-2 after I started playing hockey so flex, kick points, etc. were relatively unknown to normal folk like me. Since the OPS market is well established, those who new hockey players and/or parents go to for advice should highlight flex just as much (if not more) than height. At least that's how I see it ha.

    Stick Length for 5'9" son?

    Was just about to type that. With the technology infused into sticks these days, the stick should work for you as much as possible. You see a lot of younger kids have senior sticks cut down to their respective height preferences but lose any flex benefits. Never really thought of it myself but it was something that I started realizing recently and was a topic of discussion during my Level 4 Coaching seminar earlier this spring. Flex should be the focus.

    Was this a dick move or not?

    There are many ways to be challenged and get your exercise. You could move up a league or two and you'll be challenged every shift. After the game, you could immediately start doing suicides until the Zamboni driver kicks you off the ice. As someone who BOTH plays and officiates adult league, there is nothing to gain with a loop-sided score as mentioned by the OP. You may think that it is "fun" but there are people who will see it otherwise. And since going "all out" is completely unnecessary in adult league, why do it knowing well it would illicit a more than common response? Makes no sense to me but people still do it ha.

    Officiating 101

    Good advice. We've all been there when we know we made the right call but completely forgot who should serve the penalty haha. Repeating the number and color to yourself is the best way to go. Also do it when your partner makes a call that you saw but didn't put your arm up to signal the delay. Just a good habit to form because the smart players will play dumb and try to convince you otherwise haha.

    Officials for 2019 Playoffs

    I'd be curious to hear some solutions to improve officiating at the NHL. Anyone can point out "problems."

    Photos of yourself

    Second year doing this - Helping Through Hockey. Donations and raffles support Survivors of Abuse in Recovery (aka SOAR). Always like the mix of sports and charity and try to do it as often as I can. First pick is from the Inaugural Event (June 2018) This pick is from last month (June 1, 2019). With the colors, it was easy for me to go with my Pittsburgh SummerJam mitts and shell haha.

    Wheel options/questions

    Just ordered some Konixx Pures (+2) based on the suggestion of one the referees in our league (pretty good player in his own also). He noticed that my wheels were too soft. Looking forward to slapping these bad boys on. Looks like I should like them instantly.

    The Venting Spot

    That's rough.It took me one game a couple years after wearing full face protection to know that I'd never play without it. A couple years into playing men's league, I had the bright idea to wear a half-er. The game just happened to be against one of the more physical teams and I got shoved in the face while playing an aerial puck. I got a friendly lesson with a bruise and small cut underneath my right eye. Haven't worn a half-er since. I just never felt it was worth it because you only need one moment to alter your face. Hoping for speedy recovery.

    Expensive bags worth it?

    Late to the party but I don't think its worth paying a premium for a hockey bag. I've been using a bag that I got back in 2004. I think if someone is OCD about organizing their things, maybe. For me, I've never really cared for a nice bag.

    Why does Seattle WA have the worst hockey community?

    Haha sorry to hear that my friend. My guess is that they have too much time on their hands and use the leverage of the lack of ice to their advantage. Out here in the Delaware Valley, there is plenty of politics. There is also more than enough good people and/or rinks that just look to give ANYONE a chance to step on the ice, no matter what level of play. We have both private and public pick up hockey. We also have a multi-rink pickup hockey organization called Shinny USA that gives people a chance to play and not worry about idiots. Sorry my dude: hang in there.

    Officials for 2019 Playoffs

    It's a tough gig but someone has to do it. I agree with @chk hrd in regards to O'Halloran. Most people don't understand how tough it is to officiate a NHL game. Doesn't matter though because when the fan starts talking about the stripes more than the game itself, it takes away from what the NHL wants the focus to be.

    The Venting Spot

    Surprised to see that most people feel that way. The USA 'tender wasn't given an legitimate opportunity to play the rebound due to the collision caused by the Finnish forward. Its a tough call to make but the right call regardless what level and/or rulebook you're using for ice hockey. I feel for the Fins even though I root for USA but as a referee, that was absolutely the right call. I'm more curious as to why the review took so long.

    Coaching Advice

    I see what you're saying. I can't completely disagree. I like the small area games because there is teamwork involved but also allows for a healthy dose of competition.

    Tampa Bay Lightning (A1) vs. Columbus Blue Jackets (WC2)

    I'm completely surprised. Yet another reminder of the beauty/frustration of sports: you just never know.
