It's not the Crosby move. Mike Legg was the **** and he did it first.
Yeah I know, most younger players only know about Crosby doing it, so that is what they search for on Youtube (that's why I put it in the video title )
Fresh tape or stick wax definitely helps
The 360 is not much harder to do than doing it stationary, really you are still using centrifugal force to keep the puck on your stick. When I first saw this done I practiced in my barn and got it pretty quickly, it took me a bit longer to learn on ice because there are different dynamics, but it really isn't as hard as it looks.
There are a lot of variations as well, I can do it while skating, 360, backhand, through the legs (like Rob Hisey but not as effortlessly)
I didn't think it was very useful in a game because it takes a while to set up, but if you can do it lighting fast like Rob Hisey does in this video, you might be seeing more of it...
