Defensive skill stick would be nice of our EASHL "NHL" players had the skill to utilize what it's mostly there for. Out of the thousands of times I used it to take away a passing lane, I Probably prevented the pass about 5 times. and only because it hit the blade directly. Our players have no reaction to a puck heading towards our covered guy while using it. And yea I know it shouldnt be where if you cover a lane it should automatically steal the puck, but when I only take it away once every 500 tries there is a problem. When I play forward and a guy is using it to take away my target I never have a fear of trying to get it passed that, cause its useless without player animations utilizing it.
