    I quickly skipped through one of the games and I think I would be fine holding my own. I'm a pretty strong skater as I used to aggressive inline skate growing up (during that short period when it was cool).

    I'll probably try to sign up for the Fall/Winter league. I just need to start collecting equipment as I have nothing.

    I played hockey through high school, stopped in college. Will the C league be suitable for me?

    I would try market place and there is also an equipment exchange page on Facebook.

    The Wild practice at metro all metro have to do is use the money from that and put that back in the facility. It doesn't help metro is under new ownership every other year but it's be great if they would at least deep clean the place! Both sheets of ice kin of speak for themselves on how poor quality they are. As for WDM putting up a facility, If they did they won't get many leagues (maybe figure skating) to pay WDM prices.

    Do you have a link for this? I'm curious if this is a breakup of the Buc's D league or a new league all together.

    It's on the FaceBook pages for D League.. It would be considered the breakup/coup of the Buc's D League.

    I like that decision. I'm not sure how everybody else will feel about it, but I'm sure it will grow the league. What the d league was this year would probably be intimidating at first for a true beginner.

    Yeah, I'm glad in that aspect for the true beginners. But, as far as the rest of the politics go wait and see mode. I am still trying to get them to get some ice time in Ames (wide open) hopefully put the Ames league out of business.

    See this discourages me, I was hoping to come into D and have a wide range of novice's, now I think I'm a tweener.

    Although as a hockey noob, D2 sounds awesome for D2: The Mighty Ducks (I'm sure actual hockey players hate ducks references).

    Those movies are what got me started in hockey.

    That would be awesome. That would really grow the league too.

    That'd be no big deal. You could just start in D2 and move up after a few games if you want to. They accommodate moves in season to make sure players are in the right spots.

    The big problem with the D League now was that people wouldn't be forced to play up that were obviously better.
