How to succeed on a breakaway - getting past defensemen

I thought I would get some input from you guys in regards to dekeing around the defense during a breakaway. I have seen the videos on toe drags etc, but what has worked best for you guys as you tried to implement these moves?

My biggest challenge is either catching a pass and having a D right on top of me with little time to plan a move or hauling tail on a breakaway and coming up on the D quickly without any planning or thought.

So, how would you guys normally handle a scenario when you catch a pass in the neutral zone or the offensive-end blue line and have either 1 or 2 D to contend with?

Through the legs?
Toe Drag if this, how do you time this move. How close before you execute?
Deke to one side power to the other do you prefer to deke to the boards and power through center ice?
Cradle/ protect the puck?

Just trying to build some moves and need help with what works best and WHEN to execute them.
