If you're going to force the ther team to dump the puck in, you better be sure you can get to it first.

While I wouldn't say your defense group is slow, they aren't fast either. New Jersey's forechecking forwards are faster than Vancouver's defensemen, so dumping and chasing would be quite effective.

Alternatively, a strong puck-handling goalie could bust the dump and chase tactic. Martin Brodeur was vital in Lemaire's trapping style. Patrick Roy, from what I remember, wasn't great with the puck, so he won't be much help there.
