"Shoot the puck on net? Why do that when I can do a 360 spin, between the legs no look drop pass across the ice, with all 4 PKers in the passing lane?"
but when those plays DO work, we all drool over how nice the play was. Go watch some Sid or Geno highlights and think how dumb the plays would look if they didn't actually work.

Geno goes coast to coast, stopped by Roloson. Geno, use your damn linemates!
Sid Spin-o-Rama pass around Karlsson to Cooke pokechecked by Karlsson, who leads a rush the other way: Damnit Sid, look where you're passing! Just get that puck deep!
