Gonna have to change my opinion a little bit now that I've played more games.
Poke checks are much less effective based on what I've seen so far.
Stick lifts are probably more effective in the real game. I've found with a tough guy d-man build with 70 stick check that you can spam "X" without getting a penalty. The only problem is that I know the forwards I'm facing aren't even at 90 puck control yet due to being on early cards, and even spamming X only gets them to temporarily lose control of the puck. It does work though, because it buys time and draws them out of good scoring position. It actually plays like real defense.
