It's amazing what a trap team can do in the playoffs. Can absolutely frustrate the best offensive teams in the league. Washington completely changed the way they play after getting beat by the Habs in the playoffs a couple years ago. The only thing that gives me a shred of optimism about the Leafs is the defensively responsible style Carlyle brings to the table. Wilson's pond hockey system was an absolute mess for the goalies and defensemen. You just can't win these days playing that 80's run and gun style.
