Also, sue me if I want to win in blowout fashion once in a while. What cup teams don't? The closest I can think of surprisingly is the Ducks in 07 until the finals (even the finals games were mostly close). For the most part cup teams are good enough to blow out other good teams. Finally, do you really think teams being pinned in their own zone and blocking shots is GOOD defense? Really what cup champions have done that? That's not good defense, that's good shot blocking. The point is to GTFO of your own zone.
Shot Blocking is a newer trend in the NHL. If the Rangers shot block there way to the cup, you won't see me complaining.
