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

Gretzky must have been in Russia and saw Pavel play as a kid. :ph34r:

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.
