And Mike, I really do think you are exaggerating the defensive nature of the left wing lock. It does help out the goalie, but not as much as the neutral zone trap:

I got an email this weekend asking me about the difference between the left-wing lock and the neutral zone trap, and what I thought worked better.

The left-wing lock provides more of an offensive chance for the defending team when transitioning, however it is less effective defensively than the trap. Conversely, when utilizing the trap, the defending team puts a large priority on defending, and not attacking.

The article describes the difference between the LWL and the Trap in detail for anyone interested.
