Well then you missed it. Not the spin moves, he didn't try too many of those, though he did a couple mini ones that worked ok. He did try to stick handled through two or three guys on at least two occasions that I remember (maybe more, my feed kept freezing).
He also tried to throw a rocket pass from the right wing boards almost all the way to a player rushing in on the left wing boards with at least two defenders in the middle that broke it up. I saw him do this twice, and also force a couple low percentage short passes when he had better options.
One of his biggest detriments is the box he paints himself into. He holds on to the puck forever trying fancy moves, and ends up having nowhere to go, so he forces a low percentage pass.
