So John Tavares was selected to take part in the Allstate Insurance NHL Breakaway Challenge, representing Team Alfredsson. So what move does JT make on his opportunity to break a goaltender- Does he use his innate lacrosse skills learned from uncle John
and honed alongside MM and RSH?
Does he go all This-puck-is-glued-to-my-stick-so-get-dizzy-trying-to-follow-it?
Either move works for me, so long as he doesn't try to be an obnoxious Ovechkin-wanna-be or try to be like Ovi's countryman Vlad Tarasenko.
Funny, actually, watching the elder JT maneuver through the defenders and finding the back of the net. JT the Younger has his moves down pat. If he can put up the same kinds of numbers, there'll be a 91 banner hanging from the rafters of NVMC some day.
