If you played the way the game is asking you to in real life, your coach would paste you to the bench. Poke checking is such a limited part of defence...sad they don't have enough hockey people around to get that.
Also, no one does a diving poke check in NHL either .. They should replace the poke check with a stick check and the diving check with a poke check.
