Why don't more pros try this...

"Just saw this amazing goal on the Puck Daddy blog":http://sports.yahoo.com/nhl/blog/puck_daddy/post/Video-David-Aslin-executes-lacrosse-goal-en-rou?urn=nhl-wp13361

So, here's my question... why don't more North American pros try this in a game... I've seen plenty of players debate passes while in Gretzky's office.  They waffle with the puck and try to find a good seam... They attempt a pass, which is blocked and the opposing team moves it back up the ice.  But this seems like the perfect way to attempt to score goals - it' a great way to catch goalies off guard (look at the body language of the goalie... poor bastard).

Is the reason this isn't tried in North America because the defenders at the AHL/NHL level just more aggressive?
