All pretty much play the same style of hockey .
Hitchcock was pretty pissed when his team was labeled a " defensive " team , he boldly said we try and establish a forecheck and keep a team pinned in and play up in your face in the neutral zone .
All the above teams play the same type of game . The league made I this way . I and when the NYR PP matches it's PK and defensive structure whether it's this season or next few they will be champs . The NHL turned the game into a special teams war and now that the pure NZT is gone the trend on WINNING teams is to have defensive STRUCTURE play within your own SYSTEM , good goaltending and MOBILE D MEN who can pinch and more importantly control gaps .

The days of having 10 -15 40-60 goal scorers is gone their are too many teams the talent is spread to thin .
ANYone declAring the NYR ate ruining hockey Better wAtch the teams still alive and who is out .
Oh yeah LA is a defensive team with elite goal tending
