I remember after Legg scored the goal they did a piece on how he trained with Armstrong (if that is indeed the guy) from the Vipers, and how he was actually the first person to ever score a goal using this move (did it twice).

They showed the footage and Armstrong did it so fast, it made Legg's goal look slow and awkward.

He is the one who should get credit for being the first to ever score using this move, not Legg.

Edit: I found a clip of Armstrong, he was sick and is indeed the guy who invented the move. This is a great clip for anyone who is interested in the move and the guy who invented it. It starts at about the 2:30 minute mark with some highlights, then goes into detail on how he invented the move.

I think it was a stagnant benign tumor; it was there but wasn't growing or causing any problems, but the potential was too great to allow him to continue playing.

I remember when it happened there was a small mention a few days later about how a player in the IHL who legg knew had done the same move that night. I guess this was who that was.

If Armstrong's first was "last year" and Legg's was "two years ago" than Legg's was first. Doesn't mean Armstrong didn't invent it, but it does mean it's accurate to call it "The Mike Legg" as he'd be the first two have succeeded in a game and had a popular highlight of it.

I thought he said "I did it in a game for the wings the night before, but legg did in a national game so everyone saw it. but its cool because he gave me credit for inventing it"

Although I have been wrong in the past, and I'm not watching the clip again right now its too long.

I'm talking about the commentary on the actual highlight, not what he said. Right at around 2:30 it shows, back to back, the highlights of his two IHL goals and that's what is said in the commentary on the second one.

It didn't say Legg did it first, it said he scored a similar goal "two years ago"

Armstrong scored on that move twice before the Legg move, then he did it several other times after the Legg goal.
