Clip at the 2:11 mark of this highlight package. Tell me that doesn't look like a certain Pavel breakaway goal ...

Those goalies (equipment) are not even close really. TBH I did not see anything special or similar. Datsyuk is MUCH better than Gretzky when it comes to dekes and breakaways.

He's not stealing, he's just recycling. That hot chick who almost made me join Greenpeace taught me the importance of recycling regularly :)

Was that actually something you saw for the first time when Pavel did it? I see people to it all the time, before and after Pavel. Heck, I did it as a kid a few times as well. It's a pretty standard move if you ask me and certainly done long before Gretzky as well.

I don't think you can put a patent on backhand-forehand. It's everyone's to share. Datsyuk just sells it real well.

Agreed.

Should've been more specific, I suppose ... I meant the game 7 breakaway against Phoenix.

And yes, I'm aware that's not the first time the move has been done in NHL history. Just thought it was cool to see a near-exact replica of it.

Datsyuk is pretty good at stealing if you know what i mean

If he wasn't a hockey player he'd be a kickass purse-snatcher.

I guess Lids also stole his slap shot from Al Macinnis.

Gretzky probably stole that from someone else that may not have ever made it to the NHL.

I heard from somewhere, either here or another forum that Datsyuk stole his toe drag shootout move (Turco, Vokoun, Harding) from a teammate in Russia.

Man some of those goalies looked terrible back then.

That`s because they were. There`s a reason why no one will break Gretzky`s records... Goalies and defense will never be so porous again. :lol:

Lol, nice one Marcus.

I just think the size of the players and the gear is pretty surprising. I guess when it changes slowly over time you don't notice it as much but when you watch the old clips just after seeing a game... wow.

shouldn't be bigger than those

The difference in pad size is just unreal. Comparatively, those look like his normal legs.
