When the NHL returned from the 2004-05 lockout, one of the new additions was the game-ending shootout.
Now the NHL has no games ending in ties, which allows the league's best scorers to show off their skills.
Some players have better hands and creativity than others, leading to some awe-inspiring moves.
Definitely not a legal move in real shootouts, but this was hilarious for the skills competition.
Should this one even count?
The puck is supposed to be kept moving towards the goal.
As Briere is in the stopping motion, he's still moving towards the net. Since he has the puck, he's still moving the puck towards the net.
As he stops, he moves the puck forward using his stick. That could be the logic behind counting this one.
If the shooter can pull the puck so far laterally like that, it is tough to stop him.
This one is known as "Around the World."
Nash's long reach makes this easier for him; a goalie can't cover both posts at once.
The switch to the backhand was very smooth after the leg kick.
Goalies aren't used to dealing with a shooter who comes down at him sideways.
Yup, he just fed himself a one-timer.
Maybe he did it on purpose. Maybe not.
He's done the move multiple times. It's simple, but the unlikelihood of a player to shoot a backhander like that is what makes it so effective.
It looks so simple, but it's not as effective if the shooter doesn't have hands like Datsyuk.
Ovechkin's late change of direction here really made this move work.
Not much works better than opening up 75 percent of the net for your shot.
What makes this effective is that the goalie is likely expecting another move instead of a shot.
It's very risky to go between your own legs like this, but Ribeiro pulled it off.
Sometimes you only need to deke with your direction of skating.
OK, this isn't really No. 10, but take a moment to consider how impressive these moves really are.
Sometimes the moves don't work.
Sometimes nothing works.
Khabibulin's poke check was not very effective once Shannon decided to turn around.
Bouchard's version of the move looked a little more graceful.
If you hear someone talk about "The Crosby" move, this is it.
What exactly can a goalie do to stop this? Kane's puck-handling abilities make it nearly impossible to stop this.
Admit it, the move fooled you, too.
Claude Giroux is a superstar, and he can deke like the best of them.
"Giroux, do you got a name for that move?"
He really just made that move work.
You shouldn't be able to score from that angle.
That's not even a shot!
