Went to practice today, and at the end a few guys were taking breakaways against the goalies. Lappy burnt Boucher bad and proceeded to gloat all the way back to center ice, it was pretty funny.
Zherdev is absolutely nasty. Him and Giroux had what seemed like a competition going for who could score the most and or pull off the most ridiculous moves during the breakaways. It was crazy to watch. Zherdev's hands are amazing. He scored on a move I've never seen before. He put it off his back foot, but didn't kick the puck in, he just hit his skate hard enough and at the right angle that it popped up into the air and went into the net. It was nasty.
Also Leino is a deke machine. He was out with Pronger, Betts, and a bunch of Phantoms during the first practice. He was pulling moves off all over the place. After that practice ended he put a glove on the ice and just started deking around it. Doesn't really sound impressive but he was doing some sick things with the puck.
