The point is that the Habs were a trapping team long before the Devils were. However you guys haven't played that system in a long time. If you ever follow the Devils, we really don't follow Lemaire's system anymore, not since he left. True we still employ some form of the 2-2-1 system, but its been changed over the years. This past year Sutter has changed it completely to a forecheck puck possession 3-1-1 system, which has caused a lot more shots on goal on our side more than usual.
Both teams play a defensive game due to some great goaltending, but I wouldn't strictly call either team a trapping team any more.
