nothing really impressive, if he deked after that intsead of doing a weak shot it would have been alot better, looked like he kinda fanned on his shot abit.

Lol... it's the fact that he tried it!

He did a spin that every skater in the NHL should be able to do, skated 10 feet, then took a shot?

HOLY s***!

Even though Stamkos should stop crying

I really like Stamkos but I think it's pretty disrespectful in itself to call Omark out on that one, and Ellis's comment just wreaks of butthurtness. I mean, sure, the move wasn't as flashy and incredible like the announcers made it seem, but come on...to get on the big stage in his first NHL game, trying to prove something to your team and your fans, and pull what he did takes some serious balls.

Yea I kinda agree with a lot of you that the Spin was definitely a little cocky... But thats not always a bad thing... The shootout can be a mind game.

Number two... He did NOT whiff the shot. That is the move you fake the slap shot hard and hit the ice so the goalie thinks your going to follow through and from there you react. Either you freeze him like Omark did and just put it through him or he drops and you walk around him, but the trick is to sell the fake slap shot and sell it good and hard...

Overall it was a nice move nothing spectacular and its obvious that the whole jaw dropping reaction was mainly caused my the fact that it was his first NHL game. That takes guts, a lot of rookies would of went in there to make sure they get a shot of and hit the net.

He did an uncontested spin-o-rama that was too far away to have any effect, and then he made a typical five-hole shot on a below-average goaltender.

I don't get what's so impressive.

Filppula couldn't have made that shot.

Seems like anybody on the Red Wings not named Datsyuk couldn't have made that shot.

Hudler could make that shot blindfolded.
