And fwiw, I don't begrudge folks who miss that attacking, fire-wagon style of hockey. But IMHO, the only team in the league that plays that way anymore is Toronto. Pitts/Wash/Van/Chi.. they all trap. And I'd describe the B's as a two-way, puck-possession team. I think they aspire to be like Detroit, only they're not there yet in terms of talent (and like to mix in more physical play).
This is a very good assessment, kudos Bill
