I don't think it still applies as much anymore under Sutter. I'm not very familiar with this year's version of the Devils so I may be mistaken, but it seems to me the new coach opened up their game a little and let young guns like Parise and Zajak fly instead of just relying on Marty to win 3-2 or 2-1 games.
No, he started the neutral zone trap while he was coaching the Habs.
