And the "Trap" gets a bad rap. It's the ultra conservative versions of it that focuses on the opposition to give up control of the puck (dump it in) from center and have very little or even no forechecking that is employed so often that is the culprit.
You can play a more offensive version with more forechecking that focuses more on creating turnovers instead but you don't see it.
It's the ridiculous versions like the one Tampa was employing at times that really make it look bad...
Yeah, what they were doing in Tampa Bay made me gag. I was cheering the Flyers response to it (you no wanna play, then we no wanna play either)
