I strongly disagree.

1. Lemaire may be able to suck the life out of a game. But Patrick is one of the games great innovators. We have a coach that can solve the trap and thus completely kill any possible advantage Winnipeg has.

2. Our team is very diverse. Guys like MacKay, Tremblay and Henry can dangle. Guys like Abel, Cleghorn, Stuart, Pappin, Glass and Sullivan are all great with dump and chase.

3. Our forward corps is generally bigger and tougher and the trap requires either a size advantage or size neutrality to work.
