His shot is crazy deceptive.

Depending on the night, go down behind the glass for warmups and watch him shoot. Most players make a slight motion before they shoot the puck or can get it off their stick, Gaborik does it so quick and with such velocity you have no time to react between when the puck is on his stick, and when its already in the back of the net.

I've played goal for years and in some high level leagues, and his shot is one of the best/most deceptive ive ever seen.
