Nerfed? hell no, they upgraded it. Poke checking is much easier and the AI does it for you if you're in good position defensively. You'll also notice when you circle back up ice with your forwards to go back into the neutral zone, your player will dangle his stick to break up a pass at the blueline and take it back into the offensive zone. I've gotten multiple breakaways from that.

Like this, although Callahan would have to be coming out of Metallurg's zone, get the puck, and turn around back towards the net. I assume you understand what I'm saying:

Also, I love the addition of being able to chop the puck. Leads to quick breakouts and helps push the puck towards a teammate if you don't think you can control the puck safely without getting checked.
