this. i'm, honestly, a direct beneficiary of the poke check considering that's always been how i defend anyway and even i think it's ridiculous. i used to take pride in my poke checking, now it's just too easy. the hitting from behind in open ice that destroys your ability to use the middle of the ice is also annoying.
