This is definitely fun to watch but I never want to see my defense that loose.
I don't want to see this brand of hockey. I prefer something similar to what Detroit played for 20 years. Puck control on offense, solid defense. I know not every team is laden with HOFers like the Wings over the years. Then I'd prefer something like what we're seeing from Chicago. The Rangers and Devils have exciting players. They don't play exciting hockey. However, it's a lot easier to play the Rangers, Devils, Blues, Predators, and Coyotes style than it is to form a team that can play exciting on offense and be solid on defense. So just by playing the odds you'll see a lot more teams make the conference finals, finals, and win the whole shebang, playing our style. It's not because it's more effective, it's because more teams will play it.
