If you look at the teams that have won the last several Cups, then you will notice that this is the ONLY way to win a Cup in the modern NHL.

LA was very aggressive last year on offense and defense. They constantly attacked the puck to force turnovers on defense and to establish a fast paced game on offense. So did the Bruins, the Blackhawks, the Pens and the Red Wings.

Give credit to the Red Wings for breaking the NHL out of the over-reliance on the trap to be successful.

Passive/trapping hockey does not work any longer. Jacques Martin is living proof in his early retirement. The Islanders game was also proof for the Habs when they got away from the aggressive system.

It is sink or swim with this system. Execute it, we will make a deep run. Not execute it, we lose. As simple as that.
