It's no coincidence that Lavy's teams were most successful then as well, including his cup win in 2005. Whether anyone wants to admit it or not, the NHL is entering another dead puck era. It's been my single biggest complaint about the postseason this year. Obstruction is back, and the NHL has shown no interest in limiting or penalizing it.
