Haven't even tried the Michigan, Crosby, Thachuk, or Kucherov. Against the CPU, the slip deke is easily the most used and effective of the new dekes. Against humans, the RS out + RT + LB flip dekes are very effective at beating people taking runs at you or trying to angle you off on the boards. I've found the self-board pass to be rather useless.

I also havenít tried the new dekes yet. But the board dekes are pretty cool. I am definitely going to try and master the Crosby. Nice to have a move behind the net to create space!

Re: NHL 21 New Deke Impressions: Have You Pulled Off the Michigan?

I can do the Michigan/Lacrosse deke control (in practice), but I haven't been able to do it when coming around behind the net. Anytime I do it in front of the net the player just fails to scoop it.

I have done the flip shot, though (Fake shot, backhand drag, R1) and that's a fun one.

Great point in the article about the CPU actually trying on breakaways instead of just skating into the goalie.

Pretty sure that if I ever scored the Michigan, Id be completely ashamed of myself. 🤷🏻*♂️
