I think we've started to get away from that argument now, thankfully. People are starting to recognise that Marty is still winning games, despite not having those Hall of Fame defencemen for years now.

Sutter was not a trapping system, but in interviews before games coaches, and players when asked the key of beating the Devils would say ''We gotta get through that trap''

I think Pacioretty or someone said that this year too. I remember some assistant coach of some team saying it as recent as this last season too. Scout our team when you're prepping a little better jackasses. Maybe it's the fact we're still one of the least shots against team in the league?
Part of the reason we're one of the best teams for shots against is the arena statistician, who undercounts shots like Lou pays him to do it.

I think it's lazy media announcers who perpetuate the trap myth. Pierre McGuire has figured it out by now, but he's one of the few. You still hear clowns like Errey and Steigerwald in Pittsburgh who are busy telling their audiences that the Devils still play the trap. And there are enough people who don't know better, who believe them.
