The Flyers are 2-3. I enjoy hockey but to be honest it's my 3rd favorite sport behind Football and Baseball, I'm not going to talk about the AHL and pickups during a lockout. Cool your jets, turbo.

For the record online I'm 39-17-5. Most of those losses are me quitting when they have a guest or are poke checking fags. I hate that **** so much, I just won't play them.

Another thing that pisses me off about people on Chell. They watch every goal they score on the replay no matter how good or bad it is. Really... play the ****ing game.

I'm all for Flyers support in here, but you shouldn't come off like that against a kid who has proven his knowledge of the sport in here. I'm all for a good troll, but this is just silly.

But holy **** is this season a cluster****. All the teams you'd expect to dominate have a losing record. What the **** is this garbage.

welcome to a shortened season. Much like the NBA last year (no, i don't care about the NBA but i know sports. It's my job.) teams with young squads will do well due to the short time between games. Thusly, teams with high draft picks the last few years will do well (aka, the shake up in divisions. It's the only explanation to the Devils being so good. Other than the Asian pledging his soul to Satin.) Mid February should have things sorted out into the who-is-who bracket.

I mean, the leaders are the Sharks and Blackhawks. Neither were **** last year. The teams with the **** hot goalies like the Kings, Rangers, and Predators have done poorly. The rangers are 1-1-3 now, and holding 3rd out of 5 in the Central division. Completely unacceptable. Rinne is the Finnish Wall. Then you've got King Henrik. And of course you can't forget Quick. Top 3 Vezina candidates are off the charts.

I'll poke check all day. It's part of the game and there are ways to protect the puck from getting poke checked.

Sounds like you're bad.

The term "Hot Goalie" is called "hot" for a reason.

When 3 forwards come down on 2 defenders, do you see them chasing the puck poke checking? Absolutely not. It's a way to potentially win a game online because it's a free way to get the puck. I will only poke check if I know it will get me the puck. I play these dbags and they get 2-3 tripping penalties per period.

Meh I'll get like 2-3 tripping calls a game, if that.

I poke check when I know it's going to help me get the puck back. Or if a guy is on a half break away or some **** I'll poke check the **** out of him because I'd rather he get the penalty shot than a 1v1 vs the computer as a goalie (which usually sucks.)

It works for me. I'm not just going to skate beside the guy and not do anything to try and stop him from getting to the net.

I probably poke check 2-3 times a game. Stick lifts included. It's ineffective other than slowing the play clock. Man on man defense is unstoppable. It's easier to put a man in front of the puck than it is to flail around poke checking and get penalties.

See I disagree. I'll poke check all the time when the opposing team has the puck at the points, and I'll get 4-5 break aways a game because of it.

It doesn't slow the game down for me at all. I'm either poke checking towards the goal I'm shooting at, or poke checking the puck to the wall if a guy is close to having me beat or is just skating beside me.

Like I said, if there's a player with the puck coming down beside me, I'm not just going to skate with him and hope I can knock him off the puck. Often poke checking is your best option for positive turnover ratios.

I use it all the time and it works for me probably 80+% of the time.

With that said I'm gonna take my name out of the hat to play you. I'd rage quit if you're one of those douches.

Or...you could try and protect the puck like any normal decent player would. There are ways to prevent the poke check from working.

It's part of the game, and you have to learn to either play with it, or learn how to defend against it.

Not just rage quit because you don't use it and don't like when others use it.

There's nothing wrong with poke checking a d-man on the point and getting a break away from it, and it usually happens with Datsyuk for me because of his in-game skill set for takeaways.

You saying you wouldn't play me because of that makes you sound like a *****.

I play Dylan, Dave, Dougie, and a few others and no one has ever complained about poke checking, and they certainly don't rage quit. **** I was up 3-0 on Dougie in the first 10 mins of the game and he stuck it out all the way through.

You just sound like a *****.
