But yeah, first goalie to not react is going to have a pretty easy time with the resulting dekes... unless he's got a second deke for when the goalie doesn't move that we've just never seen before, since he's never had to use it.
He tends to go to the left (backhand-forehand) instead of the right (forehand-backhand) if the goalie reads it better. He even did it on Thomas as he dove/fell over to the right after biting on the shot.
