Dominik Hasek I used to say was the Barry Sanders of hockey: unanticipated, original moves to get out of trouble.
Whenever I talk about Barry, I can't make a comparison in regular running to any runner in other sports. I mean, someone like Ben Johnson - short and so explosive - would make sense, but, that's a run in a line, no imagination, no art.
I always end up comparing him to Pavel Bure. explosive, out of nowhere, ultra creative, nearly desperately creative, like a fox getting chased by hounds... and every time the ball/puck went to either, conversations in living rooms stopped, and everyone watched.
