What I saw last game was a simple trap. Did we do this because Toronto has no transition game, or are we a trapping team now?

Anyone see the preseason games?
What people don"t understand is that Ottawa PLAYS the trap too. They were one of the best defensive team in the game because their players (some of the best in the league) were playing a top-5 trap (I gotta give Minnesota the edge here). Anyways, Ottawa plays the trap amazingly, the diffenrence with them and the Habs is that Ottawa actually has the weapon to score 4-5 goals a game and Montreal doens't. That's why Ottawa doesn't look like a team who plays the trap. because they score a lot.
