Chris Kunitz and breakaways

Is he the best in the league at them? I think so.Never seen him not score on a breakaway.Always uses the same move too.Discuss.

If he was the best, I'm sure we'd see him in shootouts.

He's money when he spins at the blue line.

He's good at them. I don't even think he's the best on the team, though.

Like we do. I can't tell if that was sarcasm or not.

He does really seem to be able to pull that move off in "game speed" which is great. Malkin and Neal's break-aways don't seem to translate well from their good shootout conversion %.

Well its actually 2 types of shots on the same move. 5 hole or short side...he gets it off quick so I'd have to imagine that's hard to stop

I prefer Kunitz to Ovechkin in every respect.

If there were a game 7 OT penalty shot in the SCF, I'd want Crosby to take it.

Yup. Crosbar then Geno then ... not sure... maybe Neal. With a little deek to buy him a extra half second that release is pretty wicked.

All this talk of breakaways and shootouts makes me remember how great Kris Letang was in the SO for like a month and then it just stopped. What a weird happening.

And for a long time Crosby was average and Malkin was terrible, now they're both almost automatic. My world is all askew.

I remember everyone laughing at Malkin's slapshot breakaway goal against the Flyers. Now he's dirty at it.

Anderson is usually very good on breakaways, for what it's worth.

So Kunitz definitely did well there.

Or Andy had an off-night, the 3rd goal was a softy.

It was, but I noticed something else (different than thread subject) on the Kunitz goal, the Iginla goal, and the time Iginla walked right in and Andy stopped him. Your defense is cheating to take away Malkin, even when there's someone in a far more threatening position to score. The two Iggy plays, a Senators defender could've been there but was out of position because he went to take away Malkin. The Kunitz goal . . . the Sens defenders converged on Malkin streaking but didn't notice Kunitz streaking ahead of him. Andy wasn't good, but the team defense hung him out a bit last night.

I'd want Fleurry as goal tender of choice for any shoot out over any goalie in the leauge.

very true. It all seemed to turn around in 2010-2011? I think Sid was like 80% before getting Steckled.

I'd agree with that. MAF has his issues but shootouts and breakaways are not part of them.

I think the OP got a tad carried away, but in-game breakaways and shootouts are completely different beasts.
