    Jamie Benn - tries to go fivehole every single time. Most of the time he doesn't even get enough on the shot to go across the line. Occassionally he might change it up but he's been obsessed with doing this forever

    Janmark - lol he's not gonna score that's for sure. Gets the most breakaways on the team

    Hintz - usually whiffs on his shot but gets it on net at least

    Seguin - only scores when he just straight up snipes one home (and he can consistently do this). Unfortunately he's obsessed with trying to go to his backhand though so sometimes he ****s it up

    Radulov - backhand up and over the goalie. Beauty everytime

    Gurianov - had to be close to leading the team in breakaways last season and barely even played. Usually doesn't get a shot off or it goes wide tho. Confidence thing I assume or he's just going too fast

    Comeau and Cogliano you can probably guess what happens if they somehow manage to get a breakaway

    Kasperi Kapanen - flash the burners then snap it 6 inches over the crossbar.

    Crosby ... that leg kick thing he does. (yes, I realize that's not Sid. But it IS a kid ....).

    Lemieux .. dont need breakaway. On a rush, undresses 1/4 of the team.

    Draisaitl is pretty solid on the break aways. I think he gets more goals there than McDavid does.

    JT Brown's not with Tampa anymore but he'd get a breakaway at least once a game and usually he shoots wide, on a good day he might hit the post.

    When Jason Zucker gets a breakaway he goes backhand every single time...and misses every single time.
