What about your flash photos which you shoot NHL? Did you try a various of them? and any problem?
There's many ways I overcome this:
1. I have the 10D -> I can switch to "center-weight" (or "partial") metering independent from the camera (unlike the DRebel)
2. I only use the central AF point -> the camera still perform the evaluative metering (just like the DRebel), but "evaluates" around the center AF point only, which is almost the same as (1) above.
3. When in doubt I use * (FEL) which again only use the center ~9% -> same as (1), but smaller area.
4. Bypass E-TTL altogether using an external flash on Auto...

I think,the best is M mod for the flash photos as you say friends. The problem is lesser with this mod thanks to center weighted metering.
Again this is same metering as (1)!
In summary you can't trust evaluative metering based on varying focus points, there's too much variable... If you keep the metering "fixed" like any of the above -> you'll get repeatable results :idea:
