I remember after Legg scored the goal they did a piece on how he trained with Armstrong (if that is indeed the guy) from the Vipers, and how he was actually the first person to ever score a goal using this move (did it twice).

They showed the footage and Armstrong did it so fast, it made Legg's goal look slow and awkward.

He is the one who should get credit for being the first to ever score using this move, not Legg.

Edit: I found a clip of Armstrong, he was sick and is indeed the guy who invented the move. This is a great clip for anyone who is interested in the move and the guy who invented it. It starts at about the 2:30 minute mark with some highlights, then goes into detail on how he invented the move.

I remember when it happened there was a small mention a few days later about how a player in the IHL who legg knew had done the same move that night. I guess this was who that was.
