i think they would be fine in a trap. olmstead played for defensive minded TML. hunter was a 2 way player. boucher and malone played in an era where passive defensive play was very common.
i would have the most doubts about the 3rd line. but i think the trap is fairly easy to implement.
horner and especially shore were aggressive offensively, and i think generally played for offensive teams. housley was of course much more offensive minded.
but i think the main effect would be that they would score less, not that they would not be effective in a trap or similar system.
