Oh don't get me wrong. I LOVED the old style and especially the precision to which they executed it. Currently during this transition the team is far more prone to being sloppy, though to many that means exciting because there are more chances. I really do appreciate those low scoring games when they are a result of a system being executed to perfection (or a goalie just stealing the show). I really dislike high scoring, sloppy games that are basically glorified street hockey with no defense.
What I meant is just that it's annoying to hear the word "trap" being thrown out by every opposing teams broadcasters and fans 35645675 times a game. Talking about how boring it is and how screwed their team is when they go down a goal (like any lead is safe in this NHL regardless of style of play).
